Biography Grace Eugenia Barr Alderman
Grace Eugenia (Barr) Alderman
1877 Parker City, Pennsylvania – 1956 Philipsburg, Kansas
Living most of her life in the Nebraska Sandhills, Grace Alderman was an oil painter of regional landscape scenes, and also made jewelry and molded and painted figurines. Her granddaughter, Mary Billesbach, described the figures as mostly of young women whom Grace finished with richly-colored dresses and “careful detailing of eyebrows, eye lashes, and lips.” She seldom signed or sold her work, but was very generous with family and friends by giving them her paintings.
Known professionally beyond Nebraska, she is referenced in prestigious national publications such as Who Was Who in American Art and Pettey’s Dictionary of Women
