Nora Unwin, British/American, 1907-1982, "Petrean Place," This collage by Nora Unwin measures 15 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches and is matted and framed. Created in 1972, Unwin gives the viewer a look past a rocky seawall to the water's distant horizon line. Her use of cloth, textured paper, glue and colored ink skillfully adhered to a painted background was one of her favorite mediums to display her genius, giving the viewer this three-dimensional effect. Signed and dated in the lower right corner. Nora Unwin grew up in England and studied art with Leon Underwood, then at the Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art before moving to the United States in the 1940s, settling in Wellesley, MA and Peterborough, NH. She was a renowned artist, printmaker and children's book illustrator. Her work won innumerable awards and was shown in more than forty one-woman shows.
