Mervin Jules

Mervin Jules was born in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1912. His parents owned a men's haberdasher and their son was encouraged to pursue a musical career. However, after graduating from Baltimore City College and the Maryland Institute of Fine and Applied Art, he was determined to paint and teach art. Traveling to New York City, he studied with Thomas Hart Benton at the Art Students League and eventually worked with the WPA, Federal Art Project. He primarily focused on images of social commentary and musical subjects. Jules was a prolific printmaker, excelling in serigraphy and color woodcuts, and headed the art department at Smith College and New York City College. He lived in Forest Hills, Queens, and maintained a summer studio at Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he eventually died after a long illness. His works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Baltimore Museum of Art.
