To commemorate National Library Week, Barb Hauer examines and celebrates the work of Helen Dryden and Lee Miller.
Hauer prepared this talk for our Book & Brush Club, which she has led since its inception in 2009. Each month, she offers a visual presentation based on the lives of artists and associated art movements based on either art historical fiction and nonfiction.
Our buildings may presently be closed because of the coronavirus, but we can still share Hauer’s presentation with you!
Dryden is best known as a cover artist for Vogue, while Miller began as a model before becoming an acclaimed photographer and war correspondent. Discover more about these talented women who forced themselves into artistic realms that were dominated by men.
