Amon Carter Museum - Hedda Sterne: Printed Variations

Exhibition: July 28, 2018 - January 27, 2019

From luscious leafy tendrils to stark horizon lines, this exhibition of prints by Hedda Sterne (1910 - 2011) celebrates the artist's exquisite 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.

Drawn from the Amon Carter's collection, this selection of lithographs features two thematic series that Sterne completed at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in 1967: Metamorphoses, a study of the vegetal folds of a head of lettuce, and Vertical - Horizontals, a study of the atmospheric recession of the horizon. Both series expose Sterne's highly original style and her intense exploration of a single theme over the course of many experimental compositions.
