Season 6, Episode 10.

Oklahoma artist Harold Stevenson (1929-2018) created big paintings and lived an even bigger life in New York, Paris, Key West, and the Hamptons, becoming best friends with Andy Warhol along the way. For much of the past decade, Professor Dian Jordan (of The University of Texas, Permian Basin) has been researching Stevenson's singular life, gathering an archive, and laying the groundwork for a definitive biography. She's our guest on MC.
