In January 1981, a girl of twenty-two leaped to her death in New York. Francesca Woodman left a haunting legacy of crumbling walls and haunting self portraits: eight hundred pieces.

It's been thirty years ... the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is doing a retrospective of her work this year which will move to the Guggenheim.
Her story is here.
