Jean Stern Presents: The Life and Art of Donna Schuster – Sunday, April 14, 2024 at 10:00 a.m.

  • In this lecture, art historian and LAM Curatorial Fellow Jean Stern will discuss the life and art of Donna Norine Schuster (1883-1953) in a slide-illustrated lecture. Schuster was a superb artist born into a wealthy family in Milwaukee. While many other women artists of her generation could not get steady representation and income from a commercial art gallery, Schuster’s income was secure and as such, she was free to experiment with a variety of artistic styles. She arrived in Los Angeles in 1913 and quickly became a member of the California Art Club and in 1918, the Laguna Beach Art Association. She maintained homes in Los Angeles and for a while in Laguna Beach.  She was proficient in oil paint and watercolor. The Life and Art of Donna Schuster comprises about 85 images and lasts approximately 50 minutes, with time afterwards for questions. More information can be found at this link.
