Hannah Holliday Stewart

Untitled (Head of a Woman)

16 x 11 x 11 in


Hannah Holliday Stewart (1924 - 2010) exhibited in over 40 venues including The Smithsonian, Washington, DC; the San Francisco Museum of Art; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia; the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts and others. Her artwork and her career were instrumental to the increased recognition of women sculptors in the United States.

Early in her career, Stewart was well-known for her ceramic vessels. Her first bronze works were traditional portraits. The 1957 bust pictured above is one of the earliest dated works that remained in Stewart’s Albuquerque studio after her death. It may be a self-portrait. In the following years, Stewart’s faces and figures became more abstract, and her interest in mythology began to influence her work.
