Sometimes you can palpably feel excitement building for an artist. It might be a rising star from Los Angeles who works in drawing and video, or a Brooklyn-based painter featured in Greater New York 2010 at MoMA PS1 and about to break through. It is less often a woman artist of the New York School, whose presence in MoMA’s collection has heretofore consisted of one drawing, two prints, and a small tabletop sculpture, and who has been dead for sixteen years.
