From the artist’s estate.

Modernist Marion Elizabeth Maas is a painter and printmaker whose subjects include landscapes, still lifes, and figural paintings. She works in a range of styles, some of which resemble Cubism, and some of which recall Post-Impressionist Paul Cézanne and Fauvist Henri Matisse. Raised in Queens, Maas studied at a number of institutions including the Pratt Institute, New York University, and the Art Students League in New York. She began exhibiting her work regularly in the 1970s but it was in the 1980s that she gained positive recognition. Critics have compared her work to John Marin, Willem de Kooning, and Wassily Kandinsky among other renowned Modernists. Throughout her career, Maas’ work has been exhibited and collected by numerous institutions including the Queens Museum of Art, the Ridgewood Art Institute, the Salmagundi Club, the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, and the Islip Art Museum among many others. Not long after her career and work were featured in an article in the Queens Chronicle, Maas retired in 2014.
