Mary Faulconer

[USA] (b 1912/d 2011)

"Mary Faulconer studied under Alexey Brodovitch at the Philadelphia Museum School of Art where she taught in the Design Laboratory. She has in addition, served as Art Director of 'Mademoiselle' Magazine and Harpers Bazaar. Her free lance work has appeared in Fortune, House and Garden, Life, Look, Seventeen, Town and Country and Vogue magazines. (..) Postage stamps, match boxes, playing cards, and antique tins have all been faithfully reproduced life-size by Mary in her trompe l'oeil technique. Mary is an exquisite and exacting artist whose paintings are physically and emotionally precise and self-sufficient. (...) Mary worked in New York City at her studio in Beekman Place and her paintings are in museums and in the private collections of Elizabeth Arden, Mrs. George Baker, Mr. & Mrs. Paul Mellon, Mr. Cole Porter, Mr. & Mrs. John Hay Whitney, Mr. Jean Schlumberger, Mrs. Richard Rheem, Mrs. Gilbert Miller, Mrs. Aristotle Onassis, the Duke and Dushess of Windsor (who also presented a painting to H.R.H. Queen Mary of England) and many other Famous collectors."
