Audrey Munson was a muse for many artists in the early 20th century.  Sculptures for which she modeled still adorn New York City.  Ms. Munson has the distinction of being the first actress to appear nude in a moving picture.

The Daily has a brief profile of her life that is worth your time. She was simultaneously an unassuming and an amazing figure in the history of American art.

I largely have to agree with Ms. Munson regarding the relative value of abstract art.  Some abstract art is most worthwhile and thought provoking.  The rest seems limited to splotching worthy of a 5th grade student still shivering from a long walk to school in the snow.
