Untitled (Broken Umbrella)
Untitled (Broken Umbrella) by Lauren Cohen, self published in 2018
A female artist moves to New York for the first time, landing next to the Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn. Her new neighbor is the deceased composer, Leonard Bernstein. This graphic novel is a culmination of the artist's relatable insecurities about life, feminism, politics, current events, the art world, loneliness, sex, memories and New York. Laying on the granite bench at Bernstein's grave, as if in a psychiatrist's office, she seeks comfort and guidance in an ever-spinning, chaotic, amazing city.
