Florine Stettheimer (1871–1944) was among the most fascinating artists on the New York arts scene during the first half of the twentieth century, and the painter and poet counted among her fans Andy Warhol and Marcel Duchamp, who organized a retrospective of her work at the Museum of Modern Art. With a longstanding interest in beauty contests and celebrity, Wall Street and consumer culture, Stettheimer anticipated in her work many of the same interests that would later characterize Pop Art, and her synthesis of the arts and urban life remains a source of inspiration for many artists working today.
Published to accompany a major retrospective of Stettheimer’s work at the Lenbachhaus in Munich, this well-illustrated book brings together the artist’s paintings and poems, as well as her designs for studio and stage, offering deep insights into Stettheimer’s exceptional life and influence on the artists around her.
