About the Artist
Marion Huse attended the New School of Design in Boston and the Carnegie Institute of Art in Pittsburgh. She spent summers painting in Europe ; when her husband was stationed in France during World War II, Huse went with him and continued her painting on the other side of the Atlantic.
She is credited with having the first one-person show of serigraphs in Paris, in 1947. Even though she would return to Pownal and Albany, she made frequent return trips to Europe and became increasingly interested and influenced by European Modernism and the School of Paris. The subjects of her prints and paintings are diverse, chronicling her many travels from New England to Canada, to Taos, to New York, and to Europe. During her lifetime, Huse was honored with numerous exhibitions and awards. Her works can be found in the permanent collections of the Fuller Art Museum, Brockton; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The US State Department; The Library of Congress; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and many other find public and private collections.
