In 1959, Nell Blaine was a rising star in the New York art world—one of her paintings was purchased by the Whitney Museum of American Art—when she traveled to Mykonos, Greece, to paint. After several months, she suddenly felt very weak; her illness was finally diagnosed as a severe form of polio. Although she was now a paraplegic, she retrained herself to paint, turning the limitations caused by her disability into a positive force. She would travel to far-flung locations and continue to share her intimate life with women. This book is the first to reveal the full extent of her public and private life.
