Mary Fairchild Macmonnies Low Wall Art

Mary Fairchild MacMonnies Low (born 1858) was born in New Haven, Connecticut. She was an American painter who specialized in portraits, genre paintings and landscapes. She relocated to Missouri together with her family, and began her training at under Carolus Duran and also at the Academie Julian and the St. Louis Art School. Mary later had her own studio – 11 Impasse du Maine. She married Fredrick MacMonnies in 1888 and divorced him after 21 years, and then married Will H. Low. In April 1892, she was approached to paint one of the two mural tympana which were planned for the interior of the Women’s Building in Chicago, at the World’s Columbian Exposition. The other piece of work was done by Mary Cassatt. Mary’s mural was titled Primitive Women and it was deemed to be the more successful of the two. In France, Mary is represented in the Museum of Rouen, where she won gold twice – in 1903 and in 1911. Mary also won gold at Dresden and at Marseilles.

She became an associate of the National Academy of Design after winning the Society of American Artists’ Julia Shaw prize. Some of her notable works include Gathering Apples, Gathering Flowers, The Breeze, C'est la Fete a Bebe, In the Nursery-Giverny Studio, The Green Butterfly, Early Five O'Clock Tea, Morning Flower Market, Little Women, Christmas Eve in the Studio, Portrait of W.H. Low, Dogwood in Bloom, and Portrait of E. S. D. Her works are found in many private collections, and can be seen publicly at Terra Haute, IN, the Sheldon Swope Art Museum, and the Union League Club of Chicago, IL.
