Honoré Sharrer: Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?

Tribute to the American Working People (1950) by Honoré Sharrar

I must declare that I was completely unaware of the American artist Honoré Sharrar (1920–2009) until I saw a tweet which was sent out to commemorate her birthday on July 12th by JuliaPoems. Included in the tweet was part of her most famous painting which really put her on the artworld’s map Tribute to the American Working People (1950) — see above — and brought her public aclaim.
