- Hill, Richard T., 1954- author.
- ["Illustrated biography, and catalog of the California artworks (1944-1952) of Melanie Kent Steinhardt by her grandson, Richard T. Hill.", "His story spans four generations, from Mela's birth in Poland, and her childhood years in Bohemia, to her final home in Los Angeles. Her work--sketches, studies, paintings, etchings, ceramics, and photographs--reflect both the horrors of world events, and her own tormented life; the grotesque and exaggerated forms suggest the influence of post-World War I Expressionsts like Kathe Kollwitz, George Grosz, James Ensor, and Max Beckmann; cf. Joanna Weber's \"Foreword\", p. 7-8."]
