Marie Hull (Summit, MS, 9/28/1890 - 11/21/1980, Jackson, MS), Gulls in Flight (detail), not dated, oil on wood. Collection of the Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson. Gift of the artist, 1978.042.
Beloved Mississippi artist Marie Hull traveled far and wide throughout North America as well as in France, Spain, and Morocco. The artist herself left 67 of her sketchbooks to the Mississippi Museum of Art, which are filled with drawings and remarkable paintings from her travels. From this unique trove of private treasures, the Museum has selected individual sheets for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creative process of one of Mississippi’s master artists. Several of her masterful oil paintings will accompany this exhibition.
Free to the public.
This exhibition is part of Art Across Mississippi: Twelve Exhibitions, Twelve Communities.
