Amon Carter Museum of American Art

"From luscious leafy tendrils to stark horizon lines, this exhibition of prints by Hedda Sterne celebrates the artist’s variety of formal interests. Although most often associated with a group of artists called the “Irascibles”—avant-garde forerunners of Abstract Expressionism—Sterne defied stylistic categorization. Her aesthetic experimentations fluctuated between organic and geometric, figural and abstract, and painterly and graphic. All share, however, a passionate attention to detail and form."
