Footnotes

  • Before the Second World War, Stern spent many years living and working in Europe, including a four month sojourn in Italy in 1937. She was due to hold an exhibition there, but the outbreak of war put the show on hold:
    "Shall have one a bit later – when I can breathe again and need the feeling of a European connection."

    It would be a decade before Stern returned. In 1947, she exhibited in Paris, London, Rotterdam and Brussels, making up for the lost time.
