Tracing Grace Hartigan's rise to fame as America's first self-taught painter, her troubled relationships, alcoholism, and struggles with reinvention, this biography explores her life. Classes to master drawing, friendships with Abstract Expressionists, and critical acclaim for her work followed.

Moving to Baltimore, she trained students and painted her whole life seeking something truer than beauty.
