Catalogue Note

Featuring a subject reminiscent of her own early showgirl days, Kuhn’s Girl with Turban (Zuleika), always resonated closely with Barbara Sinatra. According to her son, Robert Marx, “That was her favorite painting. She called it her flapper….She always said I'm never going to part with that."
