Hedda Sterne was born in 1910 in Bucharest, Romania. Sterne was educated in the arts at the early age of 8, and in 1929 she began to study philosophy at the University of Bucharest. When her collages were included in the 11th annual Salon des Surindépendants in 1938, she caught the attention of Jean Arp and Peggy Guggenheim and later moved to the U.S to begin an extremely prolific art career. She is best known for her Surrealist approach to painting and drawing. Hedda Sterne has work in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Rockefeller Institute, the Museum of Modern Art, and several others.
