In 1968 at age 49, the painter Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) moved from her residence in Paris to New York City to be in, as she called it, “the country of strong women.” Although well known in her native Austria, Lassnig was virtually unheard of in the States and for the next 12 years she lived in relative anonymity, renting walk-ups in the Lower East Side and SoHo. New York offered Lassnig a liberation of sorts from the male-dominated art scene of Europe: it gave her the opportunity to be an artist, not simply a female artist.

This book brings together works and archival material from her time in New York from 1968 to 1980, including films that Lassnig created in collaboration with the Women/Artists/Filmmakers, Inc. group.
