Have you been watching the multi-part CNN original series, "The Radical Story of Patty Hearst?" If so, we thought you might enjoy this vintage drawing of Ray Marta's we found when sorting through work from his Oakland Tribune newspaper days.
In this graphite and ink drawing, you can see Patty Hearst in the foreground wearing a black wig and pants while firing a rifle. This depicts the infamous 1974 SLA theft from Mel's Sporting Goods in Inglewood, California. If you'd like to read more about the incident, here are a couple of interesting articles:
This illustration was probably created to accompany a feature article about Patty. If you want to see the CNN series, it airs Sunday at 9 pm and 10 pm ET/PT
Ray's work is varied and extensive, covering a wide range of topics and styles. He left behind an extensive catalog of work and we enjoy discovering the hidden gems.
For 33 years, Eureka Springs, Arkansas has been the home of the Ozark Mountain UFO Conference and this year, Ridgeline Arts will be exhibiting originals and reproductions of our new line of space-age art.While the content of the conference is serious, we'll lighten the mood with Denise's colorful and often humorous space age paintings and reproductions.
We created the images on the site to match the artwork as closely as possible, but you may see some variance on your display.
