N.p.: Artist, [ca. 1940-1949]. - Folio. 17 x 13" (432 x 337 mm.), plus margins. Pochoir stencil on wove paper. Signed in the plate. Archivally mounted. Mat a bit scuffed, print has a few nicks and smudges at the extreme edges of the substantial margins, else about fine. A colorful and whimsical image, sometimes appearing under the alternate title, "Artist in Her Studio." Hilla Rebay von Ehrenwiesen (1890-1967) was the artist largely credited with exposing Solomon R. Guggenheim to avant- garde art, who appointed her as the first director of the Museum of Non-Objective Art (MNOA), later the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. After meeting artists Jean Arp, Rudolf Bauer, Paul Klee and Vasily Kandinsky in Europe, Rebay was converted to a new art form that Kandinsky called Non-Objective painting, which she embraced with great passion and fervor. Bauer, whose paintings she was obsessed with, was also her lover and mentor. From then on, Rebay would proselitize for Non- Objective painting until her death in 1967.
