Artwork Title: Alis volat propriis - Artist Name: Eve Drewelowe

Alis volat propriis

Eve Drewelowe, 1963

The Latin title translates to: "She Flies With Her Own Wings." Particularly fitting since "A health crisis in the late 1930s led to a rejection of this role and a renewed commitment to her art; Drewelowe returned to using her maiden name and prioritized her personal needs. “I am the person to be pleased and protected,” she wrote in a journal entry from the 1950s. “It matters little what anyone else may say or think, but to have a belief in myself is a fundamental prerequisite to creating.”
