Lot Details

Martin Mull is an American painter, actor and comedian.

Born in Chicago in 1943 and raised in North Ridgeville, Ohio, from age 2 to 15 years old, when his family moved to New Canaan, Connecticut, where he attended and graduated from public high school. He studied painting and went on to graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Arts in painting.

Mull has been a painter since the 1970s, and has had his work appear in group and solo exhibits throughout that time. His work often combines photorealist painting, and the pop art and collage styles. He published a book of some of his paintings, entitled Paintings Drawings and Words, in 1995. One of his paintings was used on the cover for the 2008 Joyce Carol Oates novel My Sister, My Love. Another painting, owned by Steve Martin entitled After Dinner Drinks (2008), was used for the cover of Love Has Come For You, an album by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.
