Elizabeth Olds

Olds was born in Minneapolis in 1897, and studied at the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis School of Art, and the Art Students League with George Luks. She was the first woman to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship. Olds was involved in the New York City W.P.A. Federal Art Project from 1935-1940, and became known as one of the "socially conscious" American printmakers, taking her sketchpad into the streets, mines, factories, and farms of America, recording images of social issues and subjects. She was an advocate in developing silkscreen printing as a fine art medium and used it successfully in her work, promoting the cause of the common people.
