Artist or Maker: BONTECOU, Lee (American 1931).
From the 'Ten from Leo Castelli' portfolio. In the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York. Revolving around a black hypnotising void, Lee Bontecou's work has a special place in the history of contemporary art as it is difficult to place within a single art movement. Her artistic intention has been to capture 'As much of life as possible - no barriers - no boundaries - all freedom in every sense'.
