About Hildreth Meière

Hildreth Meière (1892-1961) was one of the most influential and creative decorative artists of the Twentieth Century whose achievements gained the recognition of the established art world.

In the 1930s she was considered the most famous muralist of the Art Deco style, and probably the most prolific in the country. Meière’s specialty was the ancient and beautiful art of mosaic, which continues to be enjoyed in churches and public buildings across the country in over a hundred commissions from New York to California.
