We had a surprise visit at the office of The Florentine the other day. Helene Brandt, one of the two women cited in our book Art by Women in Florence who is still alive, came to see us and pick up a few copies of the book.
Brandt, born 1936, is known for her cage-like sculptures, using heated steel tubing, into which the viewer can enter or remain outside of. Active in New York, she has a ‘Florentine period’ from 2004, and her work Charion stands at Villa Cerroti Guidi in the garden. Read about her on page 77 of our book.
