Grace Hartigan has died

I am sad to note that painter Grace Hartigan died on Saturday at age 86. She was a great inspiration to me, as a person and as an artist, when I was finding my direction in graduate school.

This obituary seems to talk more about Jackson Pollock and Ms. Hartigan's husband than it does about the artist herself, but at least it gives the basic facts on her life. I highly recommend the book "Grace Hartigan: A Painter's World" by Robert Saltonstall Mattison to find out more about her.
