Mariko Yoshioka was born in Osaka, Japan in 1930 and married SFC Walter James Nutt in 1952 during his tour of duty there; she emigrated to the United States shortly after. Following her husband’s retirement from the military, the Nutts settled in suburban St Louis, Missouri by the 1980s, where she exhibited at the Wittenberg Gallery on a regular basis. It was through those exhibitions that her work came to the attention of Maureen and William Bendix, Agincourt’s collectors of Mid-century Modernity.
