Missing Work

The following list contains titles of work named or referred to in articles, brochures and other materials.Year and details are provided if known. Dates for the Dubuque Public Library (DPL) are listed 1957 – but may have been painted earlier.  More exhibition brochures have been uncovered from 1955, 1959 and 1963. Many of these titles may be ones I have images of but have renamed because I cannot match image to title!  Visit the Sister Mary James Ann Nun Artist Flickr site!
