Screenprint on paper
Framed, from the original 1960s edition of 100. Printed by Sister Corita during her summer recess as the head of the art department at The Immaculate Heart nunnery, Los Angeles in 1966. Nun Corita Kent (1918-1986) is a talismanic figure in the screen print world. During the 1960s her distinct works of outsider art combined pop art, spirituality and protest. Warhol himself attended her shows, but elements within the religious establishment unfortunately labelled it ‘sinister’. A gallery dedicated to her was opened in Los Angeles during 2019..
