A Few Words About This Exhibit
Nell Brooker Mayhew (1876-1940) was born in Astoria, Illinois and trained at the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana. Moving to Los Angeles in 1908 as a single woman, she became a faculty member of USC’s College of Fine Arts.
Fluent in Japanese esthetics, Art Nouveau, Impresssionism, and Arts & Crafts, Mayhew described California in a new and beautiful language. This exhibition will feature many works that have never been seen before.
