Mary Teasdel was born in Salt Lake City in 1863. An important and active impressionist painter, she was one of the first Utah women to study in Paris. Teasdel attended the University of Deseret from 1882 until 1886 and studied under Ottinger. After her graduation, she furthered her studies with J. T. Harwood. Teasdel studied in France for three years under the instruction of William Benjamin-Constant, Jules Simon, and James Whistler. Her work was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1899—the first woman and second Utahn to have this honor. She also exhibited at the International French Exhibition. Teasdale died in Los Angeles in 1937.
