A polyvalent artist from the Avant-garde group, trained in Romania in the first half of the 20 century, at the Free Painting Academy with Horia Igirosanu, but also in the workshops of Frederick Storck, Hedda Stern imposed her name beyond the ocean, after 1941, in the United States of America, through her painting and graphics. She sporadically practiced sculpture, but in her youth years, spent in Romania. Hedda Stern was an inquisitive spirit, attracted by and implicated in the Avant-garde movement, especially in Surrealism and in the abstract Expressionism. Unlike her nonfigurative painting, in sculpture she expressed herself figuratively, approaching the human character, executed particularly in bronze, with echoes from the primitive art. She realized instalments as well, the so called "antropographs".
