A little more about Minerva Teichert Art
Minerva Teichert art is beloved around the world. She created a wide range of art from paintings around Mormon history to rodeos and American Indians. Minerva Teichert art expresses a unique style with vibrant colors.
Minerva Teichert enrolled at the Chicago Art Institute in 1909 and studied under John Vanderpoel, the leading figure artist and teacher in America. In 1915 she enrolled at the Art Student’s League in New York City - which at the time was the premier art training center in the United States. While there, she studied under the famed American artist Robert Henri, who asked her if any artist had told the “great Mormon story”. Minerva replied, “Not to suit me!” He replied saying, “Good heavens girl, what a chance!”
Teichert created a broader, more inclusive range of art - one that she felt celebrated the heroics of both the pioneer men and women. Having grown up with her grandmothers who each had crossed the plains, she felt strongly about telling the stories of the women who played a central role in both crossing the plains and establishing the new settlement of the Salt Lake Valley.
The Mormon pioneer women were the first women in the country to exercise the right to vote for city, county, and territorial officers, they served as jurors, were mayors and state legislators, managed livestock companies, ranches, and farms, were midwives and doctors, founded and published the first magazine for women in the West, operated telegraph offices, ran businesses, and managed family households and farms. The Mormon women Teichert knew were independent, enjoyed a strong sense of personal & community identity, and valued their role as mothers while supplementing that role with their business pursuits. They were able and capable, leaving many visitors to remark that they were “incredible”.
The Nauvoo Art Gallery is proud to carry Minerva Teichert art.

OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
On August 16th, 2018 President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
“The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will. “
The Church has since released guidelines stating the use of Mormon or LDS as a substitute for the name of the the church should be avoided, but such use in proper names such as - The Book of Mormon or when used as an adjective in historical expressions such as - The Mormon Trail - Mormon Battalion, should be considered as the correct use.
The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as it may take a few months still to find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
