Norte Maar is pleased to announce its collaboration with Sundaram Tagore Gallery to present a landmark retrospective of work by Edith Schloss (1919-2011), one of America’s greatest expatriate artists whose paintings, assemblage, collage, watercolors and drawings border on the bittersweet, fragile, intimate and naïve. Intrinsically linked to the milieu of Postwar American Art, every aspect of the artist’s eccentric personal iconography will be on view for rediscovery.
