FROM THE SEATTLE TIMES “IT PROBABLY SHOULDN’T come as a surprise that Ella Shepard Bush got lost in the fogs of art history. The same has happened to many other women artists, before and since. But in her day, Miss Bush — as she was always known — was at the heart of Seattle’s budding art scene.”
In 1919, Palmer became the first woman elected president of the Chicago Society of Artists. The New York Times, in 1938, upon her death, noted that many art critics celebrated her as one of the most important painters in America.
She was known for her portraits, but also did landscapes and still-life oils. Her work was widely exhibited during her lifetime.
Born in 1867, she died in Norway while on a trip to Europe with her sister.
From building hospitals to caring for the homeless, these are the untold stories of the wives of the men who governed Ireland before independence from Britain. Portraits of the women are on exhibit at Dublin Castle.
Portraits from a Path with Art Advanced Painting class are featured on the ArtsFund blog
