Truitt (born 1921) grew up in Easton, on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Her work has been shown in one-person exhibitions at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Hirshhorn Museum, also in Washington, D.C., which mounted a retrospective exhibition of her work in 2009. Most recently in 2012, the Delaware Art Museum organized an exhibition of her work exploring the subtleties of light and color through abstract two and three-dimensional forms and the artist's desire to make light "visible for its own sake." Truitt received many awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and five honorary doctorates, and was acting director of Yaddo, the artists' retreat in New York, in 1984. She is represented in the collections of many leading museums, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Whitney Museum of Art; Dia Art Foundation; and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Truitt died in 2004.
