A good word would be "oeuvre."  For example, one could say:  

Romeo and Julietis one of the best-known plays in Shakespeare's oeuvre;


The Adam's House is one the most beautiful structures in the oeuvre of Frank Lloyd Wright.  

An oeuvre is a body of work by a particular author, artist, or composer.  The word is derived from the French œuvre, literally, work, and ultimately from the Latin opera, which also simply meant work.
