I’m so sad about this. I have a personal connection with Ultra Violet. I modeled for her during a figure drawing workshop at then Manatee Community College in the 1990s. She invited me to come to her studio in France and model for her there, but I never made it. She was so interesting and some of the students didn’t even appreciate her status in the art world.
