When I came back from lunch today, these two portraits were sitting in my office. They are of Dr. Charles and Dr. William Mayo (respectively). Their portraits have graced the entry into the Mayo Memorial Auditorium for years, but now due to its ongoing renovation they have been removed. Little is known about the portraits, the artist, or their donation (purchase?) to/by the University.
The artist’s signature reads: Minerva Lyons Eisenberg.
I look forward to learning more about my new office mates. I’ll update with what I find.
