New Work! Hedy Lamarr

Hedy Lamarr
Oil on canvas
30 x 30 Inches

With all the Stutz Open House rush I forgot to post this piece I finished right before the big show. Most people know Hedy Lamarr for her accomplished film career.  Most do not know that she was also an inventor.  During WWII, she helped develop a frequency hoping system for torpedoes.  This same technology is used today for Wi-fi, GPS, and Bluetooth technology.
