"While the 2007 retrospective, The Last Works, was on view at the American Folk Art Museum, that museum was contacted by descendants of Dr. Max Dunievitz, who served as medical director of DeWitt State Hospital in the early 1960s. Dunievitz had kept approximately 140 of Ramrez's drawings and collages from the last three years of his life; they were nearly discarded by family members upon the doctor's death in 1988. Dunievitz's grandson Phil, having seen the works during childhood visits to his grandfather's house, took them and brought them to his mother's house in Auburn, where they were stored for nearly 20 years in the garage. The heirs of Martn Ramrez challenged the ownership of this group of works, claiming that as the descendents, they deserved an ownership portion of this body of work." (from Wikipedia).

His delicate figures and sophisticated, glamorous designs are instantly recognisable, and his ideas and art still influence fashion into the 21st century. His costumes, programme designs, and sets were featured in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1923, many productions of the Folies Bergre, and George White's Scandals. On Broadway, the celebrated French chanteuse Irne Bordoni wore Ert's designs.". Fine .

"She has published three books, The Saddest Place on Earth, (Last Gasp, 2006) , The Magic Bottle: A BLAB! Storybook, (Fantagraphics, 2006) and Tragic Kingdom (Last Gasp, 2007) . She illustrated a version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, in 2010. "The original illustrations by John Tenniel have always been some of my favorites," said Garcia in a recent interview when asked about the book. "I have three copies of the book here because I collect children's stories. That's one of my favorite stories because it's actually a real dark story. She falls down the hole and no one is really nice to her at all. Pretty much every character she encounters, they're not really on her side. So re-reading it I realized I could do a little bit darker of an interpretation than the original illustrations." Her work also appears in the permanent collections of LACMA and the San Jose Museum of Art.
