(Cincinnati, 1875 - 1955)

Select an image to view print information and price.

Mabel Dwight received her formal art education at the Hopkins School of Art in San Francisco. Although initially trained as a painter, she learned lithography while in Paris in 1927, and the balance of her career was devoted to printmaking. During the late 1930s, Dwight participated in the Federal Arts Project in New York City. Throughout her career she exhibited regularly, and her prints were actively collected by public art museums and private collectors.

Commonplace activities or views of daily life often provide the subject matter for Dwight's prints. The characteristic style of her lithographs are rendered with soft strokes of the lithographic crayon, in a style similar to that of regionalist artists such as Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, and John Steuart Curry. Dwight's works often display a humorous or satirical approach, about which she wrote an essay, "Satire in Art," published in 1936.
