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."
