From the Author
My deepest gratitude to Joyce Zemans, whose pioneering work on Munn has made study of this artist possible, and to Munn’s family for their generosity and candour. Many thanks to Mark Cheetham, Sarah Brohman, Meg Taylor, Ruth Gaskill, and all the ACI staff for their dedicated editorial attention. Special thanks to Sara Angel, David Urban, and Ihor Holubizky for liking to talk about Munn almost as much as I do. —Georgiana Uhlyarik
