I saw Florine's show at the Jewish museum, She lived 1871-1944 during the height of the Jazz age of the 1920s and 30s in NYC. I continue to think about her unforgettable works and what an intensely private artist she was. She was independently wealthy and did not have to or want to show or sell her works. She said it would be like letting someone else wear her clothes. Marcel Duchamp and Georgia O'Keeffe were friends, Georgia asked Florine- Why can't you be normal like everyone else?
