Just as fashions moved through the decades, from poodle skirts in the 1950s to go-go boots (1960s) and granny dresses (1970s), the abstract art of Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007) would also undergo changes in style, though always retaining a sense of her wink and a smile. Murray had moved from her birthplace of Chicago to Bloomington, Illinois, as a child, but her influence would someday extend far beyond the prairie horizon. The family had little, but movies brightened Murray's life, especially cartoons. To her family's delight, Murray could readily draw images from movies or the funny papers.
