Biographical Note

Marie Zoe Greene-Mercier was born March 31, 1911 in Madison, Wisconsin. Both of her parents were French immigrants; her father, Louis J.A. Mercier, served on the faculties of University of Wisconsin and Harvard University before returning to France to serve in World War I. Greene-Mercier described her family life during this time as "itinerant," but stability returned after the war. As a child, Greene-Mercier attended Catholic schools in the Boston area. After high school, she studied and traveled in Europe before entering Radcliffe College, where she earned a bachelor's degree in fine arts in 1933.

Greene-Mercier's early career included work as a French teacher at Loyola University, an art critic, and assistant positions at the Renaissance Society and the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1936, she began working as a French film reviewer for the International Film Bureau, a Chicago-based distributor of educational and foreign films. In 1937, she married the firm's owner, Wesley Hammond Greene. She began her association with the New Bauhaus School of Design in the same year, taking classes from 1937-1938.

The 1940s brought both the birth of Greene-Mercier's first two children, as well as the beginning of serious exposure as an artist, working in collage and sculpture. Notable early works include a series of collages, using paper mounted on glass, which she called "Polyplanes." She also exhibited figural sculptures, particularly idealized human heads and faces: Among these works are two sculptures of Greene-Mercier's sister-in-law, the actress Dame Judith Anderson.

In the early 1950s, Greene-Mercier began to produce primarily large, abstract sculptures cast in bronze. She worked in two formal styles, which she described as "Arboreal" and "Cubic." From 1953 to the late 1960s, her work was predominantly in the linear "Arboreal" style, represented by Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes and the series Orpheus. She began creating small- and large-scale works in the heavier "Cubic" style in the late 60s, and monumental sculptures in this mode would characterize her work in the 1970s.

Greene-Mercier also continued to create small paintings, collages, reliefs and drawings throughout her career. In 1969, three collections of her drawings of European cities were published by Libreria Internationale Italo Svevo as Trieste: 101 Disegni; Venezia: 101 Disegni; and Salzburg: 101 Zeichnungen.

In North America, Greene-Mercier exhibited primarily in Chicago and Canada, At the height of her career in the United States, she participated regularly in solo and group exhibitions in venues such as the Renaissance Society, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Arts Club of Chicago. However, her work found greater representation and larger audiences in Europe, with solo exhibitions held in Paris, Athens, Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, and West Berlin (A

retrospective exhibition of her work was held in 1977 at Amerika Haus, Berlin). Her monumental sculptures were installed as public art in France and Germany.

Greene-Mercier participated in several Chicago-based arts organizations, including the Chicago Society of Artists, the Renaissance Society, the Arts Club of Chicago, the Hyde Park Art Center, and the 57th Street Art Fair. She was also active in Chicago's Alliance and Maison Française. In 1956, Greene-Mercier began working with the Chicago chapter of the Artists Equity Association, advocating for the legal rights of artists. She served as president of the organization from 1959-1961. Greene-Mercier and her husband were instrumental among arts advocates who disputed the Art Institute of Chicago's use of the B.F. Ferguson Fund for Sculpture, which the museum used for operating expenses rather than for the development of the city's sculpture and monument collections.

Religion, specifically the Roman Catholic faith, played an important role in Greene-Mercier's life and profoundly influenced her artwork. Many of her mid-career works had overtly religious themes and found their way into churches and collections of liturgical art. Another important aspect of her personal life was music; she studied violin in Europe, and the influence of music on her sculpture is evident in works such as the Orpheus series.

The artist's name is often printed with alternate diacritics and hyphenations; however, she consistently represented herself as "Marie Zoe Greene-Mercier."

Series II: Biographical

The material in this series documents biographical approaches to the work of Greene-Mercier, including her own autobiographical research and writing. Also included is a set of biographical reference files.

Biographical writings represented in this series include the work of Frank Elgar (Greene-Mercier, 1978), Virginia Watson-Jones (Contemporary American Women Sculptors, 1986), Hedwig Wingler ("Greene-Mercier," 1986) and others. This part of the series includes drafts and samples of published versions of these texts, along with correspondence, publicity material, and research material.

Material related to Greene-Mercier's autobiographical writing overlaps with Hedwig Wingler's biographical and critical writings; however, this series also documents the growth of Greene-Mercier's memoirs and short articles into a book-length autobiography, for which she conducted extensive research on regional history and her artistic influences. This part of the series includes manuscripts, typescripts and outlines of Greene-Mercier's autobiography, along with related notes, correspondence, publications, and curricula vitae.

At the end of this series, a set of biographical files includes publicity material such as catalogues and clippings; business and personal correspondence; photographs, school memorabilia; and other items related to significant developments in Greene-Mercier's life and career. Arranged chronologically, these files were compiled by Greene-Mercier and her husband, and may have been formed for autobiographical research or general professional reference.

Additional writings of Marie Zoe Greene-Mercier are found in Series IV and VI.

Series III: Professional Records

The material in this series represents Greene-Mercier's career as an artist. Included is documentation of exhibitions, gallery representation, and individual collections of Greene-Mercier's work. Routine business transactions such as sales, consignments, insurance and transportation are also represented. The files in this series are arranged chronologically, and include publicity material such as exhibition catalogs, clippings, financial documents such as invoices and receipts, plans for gallery installations, correspondence and notes.

Many of the files in this series were compiled by Wesley Greene, who played a large part in the management of his wife's routine business affairs. Such material is strongly related to the Greenes' correspondence found in Series I.

Additional professional correspondence is also found in Series I. Material related to Greene-Mercier's work with the Artists Equity Association is found in Series V. Additional publicity material and other records of exhibitions and collections is found in Series II and IX.

Series IV: Critical and Historical Writing

This series contains material related to Marie Zoe Greene-Mercier's writing in art history and art criticism. Files in this series are arranged chronologically, and include drafts, samples of published works, notes and related correspondence.

Represented in this series is her research on world's fairs; children's guides to the Art Institute of Chicago; critical reviews of films and exhibitions; an entry on "Sculpture" for Britannica Junior; writings on the New Bauhaus; and lectures and scripts for media presentations. Of particular interest is a correspondence exchange between Edward Hopper and the curatorial staff of the Art Institute, debating the interpretation of Hopper's work for a children's gallery guide.

Greene-Mercier's autobiographical writing and memoirs, including her critical approaches to her own work, are found in Series II. Juvenilia and memorabilia from her education are found in Series VI.

Notecards related to Greene-Mercier's research have been transferred to Series VIII.

Subseries 2: Restricted, contains material that is subject to privacy restrictions. Included in this series are academic, legal, financial and medical records.

Series VII: Photographs

This series contains photographic prints, negatives, slides, transparencies and contact sheets. It includes images of Greene-Mercier's artwork; exhibitions and other professional events; family, colleagues and friends; travel and tourist sites. Photographs in this series date from circa 1928-1996, with a concentration of material in the 1960s-1970s. The files in this series are arranged chronologically; undated, unidentified and unsorted photographs are found at the end of the series, as are two albums, a set of glass slides, and a slide presentation.

Most of the images are black-and-white studies of Greene-Mercier's artworks, documenting her development as an artist from the late 1930s through the 1980s. Also represented are exhibitions; parties and gallery openings; production and installation of sculptures; portraits; and informal snapshots of friends, colleagues, family members and travel sites.

Many of Greene-Mercier's works were untitled, or had informal descriptive titles; titles are included in the inventory when given in photograph captions. Dates of individual works are also approximate, since her sculptures were often cast in multiples.

Identifying information and notes are found on the backs of some photographs. Some files also contain notes related to the artworks or events represented in the photographs. Professional photographers are often identified on the backs of prints - these photographers include Samuel Kitrosser, Louise Barker, Oscar Savio and many others.

Images of Greene-Mercier's works are also found in Series II, III and IX. Original artworks are found in Series VIII.

Series VIII: Artworks and Artifacts

This series contains original Greene-Mercier works as well as a variety of artifacts related to travel, research and professional work.

Artworks in this series consist primarily of drawings. Included are hundreds of drawings of architecture and landmarks in European cities. Proofs of two of these publications based on these drawings (Salzburg: 101 Zeichnungen and Venezia: 101 Disegni) are also included. Other artworks include models and plans for sculptures, prints, a sculpture of a face in terracotta, and small watercolor paintings. A few of these works are evidently by other artists. Notes and photoduplicates of artworks are sometimes filed with the original pieces.

Artifacts in this series include travel souvenirs, sewing patterns, wax blocks, and index cards transferred from Series IV.

A terracotta sculpture of the head of Rudolph Ganz forms part of the Artifacts Collection at the Special Collections Research Center.
