|Niki de Saint Phalle, painter, sculptor, and filmmaker|
From model to social activist, painter and sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle was an icon and most notable female artist of the 1960s when she came blasting onto the avant-garde art scene with her "Shootings" series -- literally shooting paintings with color. She soon became renowned for her sculpture as well, most notably here "Nanas" (French slang for women), brightly colored female forms in resin and plaster.
