THE Fine Art So­ci­ety in Lon­don is to present a ma­jor ret­ro­spec­tive ex­hi­bi­tion of Bri­tish painter, Gluck (1895-1978). Born into the wealthy fam­ily of Joseph Gluck­stein, co-founder of the cater­ing em­pire J. Lyons and Co., Hannah Gluck­stein was one of the most mer­cu­rial and re­bel­lious artists of her day. By the age of 23, she had be­gun to call her­self Gluck (“no pre­fix, suf­fix, or quotes”), had adopted men’s cloth­ing, cropped her hair, and smoked a pipe. Af­ter a twenty-year hia­tus from paint­ing, in 1973 Gluck marched into the Fine Art So­ci­ety and de­manded an­other solo show. The gallery de­cided to oblige. This was to be her last ex­hi­bi­tion be­fore her death in 1978.
