Bertha M. Hatton Duke (American, 1890 - 1971)
The minor American artist Bertha Hatton Duke, from whose confident brush came no small number of Indiana landscapes and florals in oil on canvas during the middle of the 20th century, has remained sufficiently obscure to invite, if not license, errant speculative claims about her person. She was not a "Brown County, Indiana artist," unless evidence of having at least once painted there can be stretched to make it so; by no stretch whatever was she "an African American female painter…in the first part of the 20th century…."
