About this artwork
Chicago landscape architect Gertrude Eisendrath Deimel Kuh graduated from the Lowthorpe School of Horticulture and Landscape Design (Groton, Massachusetts) in 1917 and subsequently apprenticed with Ellen Biddle Shipman, 1918–1922. From the 1930s to her retirement in the early 1970s, Kuh designed at least four hundred projects in the Chicago area, primarily for residential sites, in an elegant Modernist style that complemented the contemporary houses of her clients. The collection includes slides and photographs of Kuh’s designs.
Collections may be accessed in the Franke Reading Room of the Research Center at The Art Institute of Chicago, by appointment only. For further information, consult the FAQ.
