ALL OR NOTHING: Romaine Brooks

deals with the artist as a hero of her own making. When she died in 1970 Romaine Brooks had been neglected for decades. It was only with the 1972 exhibition organized by the then National Collection of Fine Arts (Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.) that a wide public once more saw her works.

Brooks provided art historical lineage as well as inspiration and model for 1970s lesbian feminist artists.
