Artistic Focus Little is known of this enigmatic figure that had visionary talent for evoking the Modernist sentiment in the viewer. Known as "Trin" in how he signed some of his artwork, Bonn created a simultaneously fantastic and possibly religious modernist work of art in The Magdalene. With a nod to the lovely and severe Marlene Dietrich, The Magdalene leaves the viewer breathless and in awe of this woman and the symbolism attached to her. Trin Bonn, though enigmatic, was an artist of merit.
• Trinidad Francis Bonn was born in California
