This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known as a portrait, figure, and still-life painter, Maud Stumm was born near Cleveland, Ohio, about 1866, the daughter of Frank A. and Lucy Stumm.  After receiving her early education in the Cleveland public schools, she pursued her art education, from 1884 to 1888, at the Cleveland Art Club, and then attended the Art Students League in New York, where her instructors were Kenyon Cox and Siddons Mowbray.    

During the early 1890’s, her watercolors were shown at the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and the Boston Art Club.  Later, after study in Paris with Oliver Merson (circa 1894-1895), she returned to New York, where she found much success designing illustrations for books, magazines and calendar’s.  These are extremely popular even today.

She eventually began to spend time in Nantucket during the summers, where she was active in the art community as early as 1916.  Maud Stumm was a founding member and regular contributor to the Nantucket Art Colony and its exhibits.  She is also noted there for founding the Sidewalk Art Show in 1930.  Achieving instant popularity, these outdoor exhibitions gave opportunity, recognition and chance for sales to many a struggling painter.  

In her obituary, the local Nantucket newspaper stated: “Miss Stumm was a familiar figure to Nantucketers.  Possessing a rare and distinctive intellect as well as her talents with brush and canvas, she made a marked impression upon those who came to know her, and whoever grew to know her intimately found her a delightful conversationalist as well as a remarkable exponent of the art she loved so well.”
