We're very interested in buying artwork by Jessie Hull Mayer. Please contact us for more information.

Jessie Hull Mayer was born in 1910 in New Haven, CT. She was a student at the Yale School of Fine Arts where she met her future husband, Henrik Mayer. The couple moved to Indianapolis in 1934 when Henrik took a position at the John Herron Institute.

During their stay in Indianapolis, Jessie entered several public art competitions and was awarded four commissions for post office murals in the Indiana towns of Culver, Jasper, and Lagrange, in addition to one in Canton, MO. Jessie continued to paint, on a smaller scale, a variety of subjects that included industrial scenes, marine activities, and still-lifes, notably in watercolor “ a medium that distinguished her work from her husband’s artistic pursuits.

The couple returned to the East Coast when Henrik became the director of the Hartford Art School. Jessie continued to paint professionally in Connecticut, primarily for retail advertising campaigns.
