Sister Mary Corita Kent (1918-1986) was a Roman Catholic nun, artist who dealt with socially relevant themes, and educator. Though deceased almost thirty years, her work is enjoying unprecedented publicity and attention, an exhibit in Pasadena, California attracting large numbers of visitors. Kent received an MA in Fine Arts at the University of Southern California in 1951. In subsequent years she was most associated with Boston and Los Angeles, an archive of her work currently at the Immaculate Conception in L.A. Corita's works normally deal with social themes----messages of love and peace often prominent---and color and abstraction are also commonly seen in her works. The signatures at lower right are printed, and not in pencil by the artist's hand. The prints, in identical silver frames, measure 21 1/2" by 17 1/4".
