ARTWORK

Scope and Content of Series

Series 4) ARTWORK: Mary Oppen was a prolific artist, producing hundreds of sizeable paintings and collages and competent etchings and sketches. Her work conveniently divides itself among decades and their matching media: the oils of the 1950s, the etchings of the 1960s, the mixed-media collages of the 1970s, and the water-color collages of the 1980s. Several of her works have been exhibited.
