About this product
- DescriptionHelene Aylon was a good Jewish girl based in Brooklyn, married to a Rabbi and a mother of two when her world split apart. A widow, she broke free of tradition to become an 'eco-feminist' artist. The memoir is a charming dash through the years that reveals both the joys of a structured orthodox life and the artistic life that allowed her to question the misogyny of her beloved religion. A tell-all about the ins-and-outs of the art world filled with fascinating details about art world luminaries such as Ana Mendieta, Ad Reinhard, Mark Rothko and Betty Parsons.
