A journalist before she turned painter, von Wiegand once worked as a foreign correspondent in Moscow.
A lively composition of rectangles and squares arranged like conduits in a grid, Power Plant II pulses with energy befitting its title. Von Wiegand, a forceful woman with great flair, served a term as president of Abstract American Artists, an organization established to promote abstraction at a time when it generated strong critical and popular resistance.
