Since I began working on the Albright-Knox’s Marisol Bequest, I seem to hear many more ghost stories than I used to. In interviews, Marisol's contemporaries recall instances when her works seemed to come alive in the studio, falling over in the middle of the night and making noise out of nowhere.
As part of Giant Steps: Artists and the 1960s, we're premiering Marisol's Tea for Three, part of the artist's bequest to the Albright-Knox.
Marisol frequented Buffalo and the Albright-Knox many times over the years. Here, we highlight her visit in 1963 for the exhibition Mixed Media and Pop Art, which included her work The Generals, 1961–62.
Each Wednesday this month we're highlighting five women artists with works in our collection. This week we again focus on artists who were active in the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s, and beyond.
