by Rachel Berenson Perry
About the Book:
The first published biography of noted Indiana painter Ada Walter Shulz demonstrates the scholarly insight of Rachel Berenson Perry, curator emeritus of the Indiana State Museum.
The paintings of Ada Walter Shulz (1870-1928) are enjoying renewed interest from art collectors throughout the United States in recent years. Paintings by Ada Shulz have sold well at major auctions in Boston, New York, and Chicago.
Mrs. Shulz lived and painted in Brown County, Indiana, for 20 years. Among predominantly landscape artists, she alone concentrated on genre paintings of children playing in sunlight, rural mothers carrying babies, and youngsters with their barnyard pets. This quality book features thoughtful analysis of Shulz' life and works by Rachel Berenson Perry, an introduction by Martin Krause of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, plus a chronology of the artist’s life, appendix of public exhibitions, and an extensive bibliography for the serious collector, art historian, student or researcher.
