Sister Corita

'As witness to the light for john 23 and j.f.k' 1964
(Dimensions: 29.5" x 36")

Sister Mary Corita Kent, (November 20, 1918 – September 18, 1986) was an artist and an educator who worked in Los Angeles and Boston. She worked almost exclusively with silkscreen and serigraphy, helping to establishment it as a fine art medium. Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s. A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, she ran the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College until 1968 when she left the Order and moved to Boston.

Thank you for posting this, I just found a print of this, knew by looking at it that it was Sister Corita Kent, but couldn't find another image anywhere! Where did you find it?
