Catalogue Note

Henrik Martin Mayer was born in New Hampshire in 1908 and developed an affinity for art from an early age, studying at the Manchester Institute of Arts and Sciences followed by the School of Fine Arts at Yale University. He was the first painter to receive a mural commission in Indiana under the WPA's Federal Art Project. In 1956, Mayer became Dean of the Art School of the University of Hartford in Connecticut, a position he held until 1963. He also served as Director of the Wadsworth Atheaneum.
