The Student

The Student (c.1937)

Are you interested in the artwork of Mary E. Hutchinson?  I am a Women’s Studies scholar who has been researching and writing about Hutchinson for the past ten years.  I am currently revising my dissertation, “Mary E. Hutchinson: The Absence of an Oeuvre,” for publication.  You can contact me by leaving a comment below!

Rosalie (1933)

I’ve had a flurry of new visitors (especially from Canada) to my “work in progress” digital catalog of Hutchinson’s artwork at http://meh.omeka.net since “Rosalie” (1933) recently sold at auction.  I would love to learn who was lucky enough to snap up this one!

    Hello there,
    My father has an oil painting of a woman resting her face on her fist that he bought at a yard sale years ago. The artist is Mary E. Hutchinson and is from the 30’s. Let me know if you’d like me to send pictures, I’d love to hear of what you gather.
    Thanks,
    Madeline

    I just saw one of her paintings of Lola on Antique Roadshow. They said she was from Atlanta. I’m a native Atlantan and I’d like more info about her. Are there any books or anything available ?

  • kami blue says:

    Thanks for your hard work on the digital catalog! Do you have any biographical information on her muses?

    Thanks again

    I have an etching that appears to be signed by a Mary Hutchinson. I wonder if you wouldn’t mind looking at the image to help me determine if it is the same Mary Hutchinson in your research? Thank You.

    She taught art at st Pius. She had paintings I saw left in the old ship house where she lived,
    The iron horse, the granite house across from the high museum. Paintings done when she lived in New York with Chinese man, her roommate and fellow painter, and parrot in a cage.

    I purchased a painting by Mary E Hutchinson from a yard sale site. It is a rather large oil painting of water lilies. Any record of this type of painting? I’d love for you to see a picture!

    I knew a good friend of Mary’s, peace activist and theater director Anne McVey Upshure who lived in the Village before moving to Harlem. Anne’s common-law husband of many years, composer and pianist Theodore Luke Upshure was the son of a woman born into slavery and who supported her son taking in laundry when lived on Cornelia Street (there was a Black presence in the Village in the late 19th and early 20th century). When I knew Anne she had a beautiful painting Mary had done of Theodore and when I looked her up on Wikipedia I saw another painting of an anonymous “composer” that I’ll wager also used him as a model. Last time I looked up Mary’s work, back in the 80’s or 90’s there was quite a sensuous nude at a NYC gallery that had just been purchased (word of mouth, by one of The Rolling Stones; who knows?)
    I also just saw a clip about a portrait being shown at a PBS antique road show by the daughter of a very pretty portrait subject of Mary’s…Would love to learn more about your book.
