Description

Nell Brooker Mayhew was a pioneering woman artist whose work broke the bounds of social and artistic convention at the turn of the nineteenth century. She brought a bold and bright new spirit to the Southern California art scene. With color and energy as her tools, Mayhew quickly established herself as a noteworthy artist, speaker and teacher among a freethinking Los Angeles art crowd. During her lifetime, she was widely exhibited and well-respected. Mayhew’s legacy has been unjustly neglected, until now.

This first monograph of her work features numerous color images taken directly from the original paintings and brings together previously dispersed research.
