Content description from Jeffrey Thomas Fine Art checklist for exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Institute: Archival photograph of Mary working on mural - 1956 - Between 1955 and 1962, Mary worked at numerous and highly miscellaneous free-lance assignments, from painting a billboard for a poodle kennel to choosing paints and wallpapers for an expensive subdivision. - For Maxwell's Coffee House restaurant in Los Angeles, she painted a series of small murals showing the coffee-growing process; a large mural for the Santa Clara County Courthouse depicted episodes from local history. - Toward the end of this period, her work grew more abstract, culminating in her large-scale mosaics for the entrance to the new Hewlett-Packard plant in Los Alto Hills, which is still exquisite and intact to this day.
