This is a powerful, nuanced film about an important woman artist, one who has left a vast legacy of work and students as testaments to her vision. Very well produced and tightly shot -- not to be missed!

Grace Hartigan was a unique and talented artist in her own right who was best known for her Abstract Expressionist painting of the 1940's & 50's. She was one of only a few artists who managed to hang out at the rough and tumble Cedar Bar, the haunt of the era's most notable artists, De Kooning, Pollock and Rothko.

The movie admirably demonstrates that early period of American artists, hard living and drinking as well as how Grace was truly a contemporary of the period's best artists in every sense, despite the chauvinist environment. Clearly her work rivaled the better known artist of the time.

This is a stimulating, fast paced portrait of one of America's (and certainly Baltimore's) most important artists.

What a pleasure to view this scholarly and visually entertaining film about the life and work of expressionist painter Grace Hartigan! The film follows her work as it is reflected in the inner and outer changes in her personal life, weaving through a period of many decades. In addition to her body of work itself, the viewer enjoys the visual journey back through this period in the history of modern painting.

I heartily recommend it.
