Edgar’s Portrait, by Helen
Edgar’s sister Helen is an accomplished artist with a particular gift for portrait painting. She also painted many of the sets for Edgar’s plays over the years. In 2013, her work was featured in a solo show titled “Lunar Landing” at the Participant Inc. space on the Lower East Side (See http://www.nytimes.com/events/art/galleries-other/helen-oliver-adelson-hoa-the-lunar-landing-14946.html).
She resides primarily in Tarquinia, near Rome, and on a recent visit, Edgar sat for his portrait.
