Joyce Wieland is known as a painter, sculptor, quilt designer and filmmaker. She consistently resisted traditional boundaries between artistic disciplines. A feminist, a patriot and an environmentalist, Wieland created an art that is at once intensely personal, and universal. Many have seen her work as auto-biographical. This exquisite small portrait is an intimate, searching assessment of the artist, painted in 1978 when she was forty-seven years old. It is remarkable for its honest assessment of both her physical and inner states of being.
