Ghisha Koenig was born in London and studied at the Chelsea School of Art under Henry Moore and the Slade.
She was the sculptor in the 'Kitchen Sink' group of artists.
With Prunella Clough she regularly visited factories to sketch the workers [unions were very suspicious they were sent in by management as 'time and motion' inspectors].
One-man exhibitions included Grosvenor, Serpentine and Boundary Galleries.
The Tate Gallery have some fine examples of her sculpture in their collection.
