About the Artist: Mac Le Sueur was born in San Antonio, Texas on December 13, 1908. LeSueur moved to Sacramento, CA with his family when quite young.

He attended the Minneapolis School of Fine art from 1929 until 1932. Upon graduation, Le Sueur made a trip to Mexico, where he viewed the Pre-Columbian art that would later influence his own work. Le Sueur became a prominent artist and teacher of the Depression and WWII era, instructing at both the Walker Art School and the St. Paul School of Art.

"Le Sueur So Far" was the title of his 1955 show at the Walker Art Center. Le Sueur and his wife, Lorraine Goff Le Sueur, exhibited jointly throughout the 1950s and 1960s.
