Ida Applebroog, Vital Feminist Artist With a Dark Take on Domesticity, Dies at 93

Ida Applebroog, a feminist artist with an unerring eye toward power, has died at 93. Her death was confirmed by her Hauser & Wirth, which represented Applebroog since 2009.

Over six decades, Applebroog’s practice shifted between painting, sculpture, film, and photography. She was a monumental presence in America’s feminist art movement, with an oeuvre fascinated by bodies, many pictured in domestic settings, in ambiguous couplings and groupings. Under her uncompromising gaze, interaction was a game dictated by violence and gender.
