Maria Lassnig 1920-2014

A great underrated rebel and nomad of a painter, gone at the tender age of 94.

Here's a perfunctory obit on Artforum. Here she is in a cheerful moment.

Unfortunately the closest I got to writing about her was her inclusion in the Sie. Selbst. Nackt. show at Bremen last year. This was her contribution. She was definitely an original though, always went her own way and paid the price most of the time. Still, at least she found recognition in her later years.
