Maybelle was born in Dublin, NH in 1907 as Mabelle Richardson and raised in the Dublin / Hancock / Peterboro area of New Hampshire.In the 1920's she studied under George DeForest Brush in Dublin.She graduated from Keene, NH in 1927. She studied at Boston in 1928 & 29 before going to new York, where she studied from 1930 - 1937. She married Willson Stamper in 1937. ( This was an unhappy narriage and this period influenced her style of work ).She changed her name to Maybelle and kept her married name of Stamper for the rest of her life. She followed this by teaching at the Cinncinati Art Academy from 1938-1943.In the 1940's she visited Nova Scotia several times with friends and we have unknown/uncataloged  landscapes and lithographs from this period as well.  In 1943-46 she visited Captiva Island in Florida. She fell in love with the island and made it her home for the rest of her life. She painted landscapes, modern art, portraits etc, whatever it took to survive in the early period , becoming a talented, listed and well know artist through all this.  Above all, she is best known for her lithographs and rightly so. We have early works of hers on masonite, paper, paper bags, canvas. As she was a relation, this description will be added to as time goes on, and we dig up the notes  left by her. Her work has been in major exibitions from the 1930's through the 1990's. She died in 1995  leaving hundreds of cataloged pieces. Nearly all of the pieces offered here are NOT included in her cataloged works. See the publication "Songs Of Maybelle"  assembled by Jay Williams / McKissick Museum / University of South Carolina.

Some or her exibitions:
1930's - New York - GRD Gallery,Krusharr Gallery,Morton Gallery, Studio Club, Eighth St. Playhouse, Montross Gallery
1930's - Womans Art Club - Cinncinati , Cinncinati Museum of Modern Art

Since these have never left the family, and many are unsigned,
starting 1/13/06 we will be putting the following stamp on the back
of ALL works in our collection  by Maybelle.
Also, all pieces will be filed to disc with size
and any available info as a way of providing clear provenance
in the
future and for possible printing.
We will be forwarding a copy of this disc to the Smithsonian upon completion.
