Gertrude Horsford Fiske was an amazing American artist. She was born in 1879 and passed away in 1961. She was famous for painting people, still life, and landscapes. During the early 20th century, she was part of the Boston School of painters, which was a big deal in the art world. What’s really cool is that in 1929, she became the first woman to be appointed to the Massachusetts State Art Commission.
