Thief of Souls

Alex Van Oss reports on a new exhibition featuring the work of Romain Brooks, a bohemian painter who worked in Paris in the early twentieth century. Though she painted seemingly traditional society portraits, she painted them so passionately that she's been called the Thief of Souls. The exhibition continues at the National Museum of Women in the Arts through September 24th.
