Minerva K. Teichert

  A widely recognized artist, she was a granddaughter of William Adams Hickman through third wife Minerva Wade Hickman.  Her mother was Mary Ella Hickman (1865-1941).  Minerva Teichert had a unique style, and it is easy to recognize a Teichert painting before you even find the signature.

Minerva painted this mural in 1935
showing Mormon handcart pioneers
entering a canyon.  It now hangs in
the LDS Church Office Building in
Salt Lake City, Utah.

  "She was a very impressive woman. She was a very personable woman. She wasn't an unapproachable, stiff-necked artist.  You could tell a Minerva Teichert painting if you bumped into it in China.  I respect her for her qualities and tremendous artistry that she has shown."
--Gordon B. Hinckley
