Greenwood, Marion (American painter, 1909-1970)

Note: After attending school in Paris, Greenwood moved to New York in 1930 and began her career as an illustrator. The following year she traveled to the Southwest where she painted Navajo Indians. She then travelled to Mexico where she painted her first mural, which consequently earned her several commissions. Working with her sister Grace Greenwood, she completed a group mural for Diego Rivera in Mexico City. In 1936, she returned to the United States and continued painting murals for the WPA. In 1944 she was appointed as a war correspondent and produced a series of paintings for the Army Medical Corps. After the war she practiced mainly easel painting and lithography, while travelling extensively in China, the West Indies, Africa, and India.
