NEBRASKA: Jean Thiessen – The MONA Collection

Exhibition Website

Jul 21 2017 - Feb 25 2018

Self-taught artist Jean Thiessen (1876-1960) created captivating on-edge felt mosaics in the early part of the 20th century. MONA is fortunate to have seven of her works, acquired from her son’s estate who himself was a prolific artist and an early leader of the Museum. These unique and amazing creations exhibit rich coloration and a linear design, examples of an artist in full control of her medium.
