Happy Birthday, Maria Lassnig!

In May I wrote a post about the famous Austrian painter Maria Lassnig.

Today, Maria Lassnig celebrates her 90th birthday.

In an interview with the Austrian daily, derStandard, she said: "The age! In Austria you're labelled by the age as a woman and as an artist. But I've never counted the years. I was never young, and I'm not old now."

Here's an interview by Frieze Magazine from 2006.

The painting you show here is hysterical, given the topic of her birthday! That quote is SO excellent.
