The Life and Art of Anne Eisner: An American Artist between Cultures

Anne Eisner came of age in the 1930s and 1940s, during the struggle among artists and intellectuals to combat fascism and create a better world. After studying at the Art Students League, she left a successful career as a painter to follow Patrick Putnam, with whom she had fallen passionately in love, to Epulu, a multicultural community in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo.
