About Mary Bonner:
Mary Bonner (1887-1935) is the best-known Early Texas printmaker, and one of the few Texans who received recognition in Europe. Her interpretations of Texas cowboys inspired by Greek friezes, and her sense of whimsy, remain her most popular subjects. The gallery has handled almost all of her images, from the Breton subjects to the Cowboy triptychs.
