Pigeons in Washington Square

Marion (Mion) Jordan Gilmore (Hulse)

 1909-1960
oil
10" x 14"
      This WPA artist illustrates the recognition dilemna that has plagued women for years. She returned to her home town and established herself as a noted painter, illustrator, cartoonist, and teacher with two WPA murals in Iowa to her credit. She won prizes in the 48 States Competition held in Corning, Iowa and was exhibited widely. Her art was included in many local collections and institutions. At some point she married, moved to New York City, and her artistic record stops … under that name.

   After WWII, continuing to paint using her married name Marion Hulse, she re-establishes herself as a painter, sculptor, designer and illustrator. At some point, probably because of the subtle prejudice against women artists, she decides to sign her paintings with the “gender neutral” name of Mion (Hulse).

   We've sold a number of her works, most from her New York years, children dancing in the fountain in Washington Square, scenes on the stoops of brownstones.
