The Curve of Her Life: Folk Artist Laura Hjelle Hoeg by Carol Hoeg Oliver


Laura Hjelle Hoeg was a major contributor to the 1950s revival of rosemaling in America and famous for her version of the painted Norwegian nisse. Carol Hoeg Oliver's biography is a thoroughly researched, conversationally written story of her mother's search for identity, the success she found in middle-life as a folk artist, and the grace and humor with which she accepted the eventual loss of her sight, breast cancer, and other afflictions of age. It is a quest story, a study of the development of an artist, and the portrayal of one woman's life and adventures in Iowa, Norway, Minnesota and Arizona over the decades of the twentieth century.
