Red Bluff

Marie, the daughter of Ernest Sidney and Mary Katherine (Sample) Atkinson, was born in Summit, Mississippi, on September 28, 1890. The Atkinson and Sample families had lived in Mississippi for several generations. She studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and at the Art Students League in New York. She exhibited her work at the New York World's Fair and the San Francisco Golden Gate Exhibition in 1939, Chicago Art Institute, and the All-American National Shows in New York. Marie Hull's art covers a period of sixty years and varies in style from traditional painting to very abstract art. Mrs. Hull has been an inspiration to others, and in her search for quality she has probably contributed to the love and appreciation of art throughout Mississippi more than any other artist.
