Reba Stewart

Reba Stewart Print

The brief career of Boston-based artist Reba Stewart was cut tragically short when she died of malaria in 1971 at the age of 41. MIT's Program in Women's Studies has a scholarship established in her name and the web site shows many fine examples of Reba's work including 7 woodcuts. Interesting too is a 1960 letter written by Reba from Japan, where she studied woodblock printing, telling of her stay at the home of woodblock printer Toshi Yoshida.
