    Girl with Radish (1963)
    Marjorie Strider

    Girl with Radish (1963) is a painting by Marjorie Strider during the pop art movement. In the work of her male contemporaries such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Tom Wesselmann, women’s mouths were pretty much vehicles for lipstick and compliance; Strider gave Girl a bit more bite. Instead of a cherry as befits the American visual tradition, Strider had Girl biting into a radish, disrupting the flat femininity on which so much contemporaneous Pop art had relied.

    Marjorie Strider (1934-2014) was one of the most significant female Pop Artists in the 1960s New York milieu. Like her European women contemporaries Evelyne Axell and Pauline Boty, Strider has taken on some of the most iconic motifs of Pop Art from a distinct female perspective of exuberant counter-appropriation. Her prominent joyfully provocative relief paintings of the ‘Bikini-Nudes’, the comically lascivious ‘Girl’ faces and cooly eroticized ‘Giant Vegetable’ are amongst the most memorable works of the Pop Art decade.

    New York: 1962-1964 explores a pivotal three-year period in the history of art and culture in New York City, examining how artists living and working in New York responded to their rapidly changing world, through more than 150 works of art—all made or seen in New York between 1962-1964. This exhibition is on view at the Jewish Museum July 22, 2022 - January 8, 2023.
