“Blessed are the Peacemakers”: Violet Oakley’s The Angel of Victory (1941)
Violet Oakley (1874–1961) was an illustrator, stained-glass designer and the first American woman to find fame in the burgeoning field of public mural painting. Throughout her 60-year artistic career she also devoted herself to the quest for a just and peaceful world. During World War II, the elderly Oakley continued that mission by joining with the Citizens Committee of the Army & Navy to produce portable altarpieces for use on American battleships, military bases, and airfields around the world.
