Biography   Mervin Jules


A painter, illustrator, print maker, and educator, Mervin Jules is known for painting and illustration that focuses on social commentary and that often employs satire.  He "typically uses dramatic and evocative lighting where sinewy figures emerge from darkened backgrounds, much like the paintings of Honore Daumier." (ArtSource)

He was very active as a print maker, having been a designer of silk prints and china painter as a young man growing up in Baltimore.  During the Depression of the 1930s, he was a member of the Silk Screen Unit of the Fine Arts Project of the WPA.

Jules studied art at Baltimore City College, and on scholarship at the Maryland Institute of Fine and Applied Arts where he graduated in 1934.    ...  Displaying 750 of 4246 characters.
