The project ”Hedda Sterne – The Discovery of Early Years 1910-1941” is dedicated to the important discovery by the Romanian curator Cosmin Nasui, made in Bucharest in April 2014, consisting of documents, photographs and the body of artworks created by Hedda Sterne until 1941, before she left Romania. Kept locked for more than 75 years in time, this treasure survived miraculously, being encapsulated within a private collection. Born in Romania in 1910, Hedda Sterne moved in the U.S in 1941, where her works later found their way to the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. It is still difficult to start to introduce Hedda Sterne other than with the clichés that described her either as the only female in the Abstract Expressionist group the Irascible 18 or the wife of the famous illustrator Saul Steinberg.
