Marjorie Strider was a core member of the 1960s avant-garde movement. She’s most known for her three-dimensional paintings of beach girls with “built out” curves, which were prominently featured in Pace Gallery’s 1964 International Girlie Show alongside other “pin-up”-inspired Pop art by Rosalyn Drexler, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Tom Wesselman. Her comically pornographic Woman with Radish was made into the banner image for the show, one of the first successful exhibitions of the then-new gallery. (via wikipedia)
