Selma Hortense Burke - Sculptor

Ms. Burke was a famed artist and that was a fact because her work was allegedly stolen by another. And  THAT'S how YOU know you've arrived. Her sculpture of Franklin D. Roosevelt was "borrowed from" by U.S. Chief Engraver John R. Sinnock for Roosevelt's image on the dime. He denied the claims that his work was not original. Oh well. What else is new?

Anyhoo, Ms. Burke went on with her life. Always the best revenge!
