Bettina Grossman

Born 1927 in New York, United States.
Died 2021 in New York, United States.
Starting in the 1950s, Bettina Grossman lived and traveled for ten years in Europe, where she produced a remarkable body of work including photography, painting, printmaking, sculpture, film, drawing, and text-based art. Following the loss of her work in a fire that destroyed her studio in 1966, she moved to the legendary Chelsea Hotel until shortly before her death in 2021. She has been the subject of several films, including Bettina (Sam Bassett, 2008) and Girl with Black Balloons (Corinne van der Borch, 2010), and more recently appeared in Dreaming Walls (Maya Duverdier and Amélie van Elmbt, 2022).
