Biography Maurice Merlin
Maurice Merlin (1909-1947)
He was born in Sioux City, Iowa, on September 26, 1909 and drew from an early age, receiving encouragement from his parents and artists who saw his work. He completed his academic training in art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He worked in water-color, in silk-screen, created paintings in egg-tempera, poster art for the WPA in Detroit, as well as lithography. The lithographs were mostly done in 1939 during which time he collaborated and worked with five other Detroit artists, Ed Jaeger, Frank Cassara, Barbara Wilson, Henri Bernstein and Walter Speck. They worked together in lithography, learning techniques from one another and helping one another in production.
