This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Grenoble, France, Blanche Wagner became known as a tapestry maker and illustrator, and for her paintings of portraits, costume and genre depictions of Maya people, and landscapes, including missions of Southern California.  She was also a writer and authored a book titled Tales of Mayaland.

Wagner painted in France, Mexico, New York and Northern and Southern California.

She studied art in Paris with H. Gazan and in Seville, Spain with Alfonso Grosso.  In 1917, she married Henry R. Wagner in Oakland and then studied in New York City with Clinton Peters.

After that, Wagner returned to California where she lived in Berkeley before settling for the remainder of her life in San Marino.

She was a member of the Laguna Beach and Long Beach Art Associations, the California Art Club, and Women Painters of the West.

She is referenced in Who's Who in American Art, 1936 through 1955.
