Paperback
In Remembering Irma , Mona Berman shares her close reading of the letters, situating them in the context in which they were written and weaving around them her own memories of this brilliant, passionate and difficult personality.

Remembering Irma will intrigue anyone interested in the life and art of Irma Stern, whose passion and extraordinary talent made her one of the great women painters of the twentieth century.
