Does anyone know who the painter is that is mentioned in R. Crumb's Art & Beauty #3? You can see portraits of her here. Crumb thinks she might be a genius. I would like to see her paintings.

Something about the phrasing -- I get the feeling that Crumb might be making these comments about someone he knows.

Maybe this person? She is a painter.

Try asking the Publisher, they might be able to help

I don't think it could be Aline Kominsky-Crumb. She's Robert Crumb's wife, and though she's a wonderful artist, she's not young (as the caption describes).

Agreed. It's almost definitely not his wife Aline. There's a portrait of her elsewhere in the issue, and they look nothing alike.

I may just try asking the publisher.
