Washday on the Plains


Minerva Teichert, 1938



Minerva Teichert, 1938

The works of western American artist, Minerva Teichert, have received increasingly popular and critical acclaim in recent years. From her modest home in Wyoming, Teichert produced a prolific number of paintings that celebrate the saga of western settlement and the heritage of her Mormon faith. Today, Teichert is beloved among the LDS community as a woman who successfully combined faith and family and left an extraordinary legacy of artistic production. In this mural,  the strong, energetic female forms represent a new subject-the vital role of women in the settling of the West. In this large painting, pioneer women’s contribution of clean clothes to the colonizing of the West seems almost heroic.
