Nell Brooker Mayhew

(1876-1940)

Painter & Master Of The Color Etching

by Alissa Anderson

Recognized for her boldly colored "paintings on paper," Nell Brooker Mayhew (born Nell Cole Danely) brought an innovative approach to painting and printmaking to Southern California in 1908. Having trained at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University and the University of Illionis at Urbana-Champaign, Mayhew was fluent in the aesthetics of French Impressionism, Japanese woodblocks, Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Symbolism. She combined these cutting edge ideas and won acclaim, showing along side such artists as William Wendt , Edgar Payne, and Hanson Puthuff. Sullivan Goss is pleased to present the Estate of the artist.
