Violet Oakley : An Artist's Life, Hardback Book

Violet Oakley : An Artist's Life Hardback


This is the first full-length biography of the only major female artist of the beaux-arts mural movement in the United States.

It traces her career in mural painting but also in illustration, stained glass, and portraits, as well as extensive publications.

Oakley was a role model for many younger female artists but also notable is her later career in promoting international peace in the face of two world wars and the resulting Cold War.
