THIS GIRL.

Fiber Artist, Trude Jalowetz (Guermonprez). 1938. She deserves a post all to her beautiful lovely self. I only wish I could find images of her tapestries though I managed to find a comic strip, The All American Girl.

Her family immigrated to the United States in 1933 and settled in North Carolina where both parents taught at the innovative Black Mountain College. Following the death of her father in 1947, Guermonprez joined her mother and sister and also began to teach at Black Mountain, at the invitation of Josef and Anni Albers.
