Corita Kent (1918-1986) was one of the most important American
graphic design artists of the 1960s and 1970s.
A Roman Catholic nun from 1936 to 1968, Corita Kent
gained international recognition as an activist and artist.
Corita developed her own version of pop art in the early
1960s and gained fame for her bright-colored
serigraphs that combine pop graphics
with a sharp literary style.
Corita’s work appears in the permanent collections of over 40 major museums, including the National Gallery, Metropolitan Museum,
Museum of Modern Art, the Bibliotheque National in Paris,
Victoria and Albert Museum in London,
Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
