Hilda Rubin Pierce was born in Austria in 1922, but left for England in 1938, when Hitler took over. She later moved to Chicago and was described, in a 1958 Chicago Tribune article as a “young Chicago artist of great promise.” She exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago and taught art. She later wrote a memoir entitled, Hilda: a True Story of Terror, Tears, and Triumph. She currently lives in San Diego, California. The Library owns another painting by Rubin, “Walled City.”
