Mary Putman: Art is About Us

Regular price: $20

Member price: $18

For Delaware-based painter Mary Putman, art is—and has always been—about us. Putman’s paintings explore the vast and complicated interconnections between the land and its occupants meticulously depicting the world in which she and we all live, often with unusual and sometimes surprising perspectives.  

In conjunction with this exhibition, the Biggs and The University of Delaware have collaborated on a book celebrating the life and art of Mary Putman

Author, Kristen Nassif is the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow at The Walters Art Museum. She received her Ph.D. in Art History from the University of Delaware in 2022.

The Art of Trompe l´Oeil,” and forthcoming essays for the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Bloomsbury Cultural History.
