Marjorie Nuhn

Ferner included a list of Marjorie’s works with the memoir transcript. In his notes, he often included subject locations. In the list that follows, Ferner’s additions are separated from artwork titles using parentheses. Descriptions of untitled works are in brackets. Some inconsistencies or mistakes in spelling have been retained from Ferner’s list. An updated provenance and current location of each work is also included, when known.
