An active member of the New York School, Hedda Sterne, who was born in Bucharest, Romania in 1910 and fled to the US in 1941, created an extensive body of work that intersected with some of the most important movements and figures of the twentieth century.

A bridge between European Modernism, in particular Surrealism, and American Abstract Expressionism, Sterne’s work stands as a testament to her independence of thought, moving freely between figuration and abstraction throughout her career.

Her work has enjoyed increased critical visibility in recent years. Notably Sterne’s 1954 painting New York VIII is featured in MoMA’s reinstallation of its permanent collection.
