This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Following is the obituary of the artist from the Palm Beach Daily News:

“Artist Ouida George of Palm Beach Gardens died Sunday, June 8, 2014. She had her art shown in many island galleries and had a show of her work at The Society of the Four Arts.

Born in 1916 in Chicago, Mrs. George started her career as a sculptor, attending the Art Institute of Chicago. She studied with artists Ann Norton and Jose de Creeft, and at the “Escuela La Esmeralda” in Mexico City.

She exhibited from 1950 through 1994 and her paintings can be found in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. In 2009, The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach honored her with a retrospective show of her work.

More than 60 years ago, George signed with the only gallery in Palm Beach — Alice DeLamar’s Worth Avenue Gallery, according to a 2009 Palm Beach Daily News story.

In 1958, George transferred to Palm Beach Galleries, which was owned by a group of society mavens including Mary Sanford.

In 1973, George followed the gallery’s assistant director, James Hunt Barker, when he opened a gallery of his own in Palm Beach. She showed at Barker’s gallery and served as his art consultant for more than 20 years, setting up exhibitions and receptions.

Victor Hammer saw her work here and signed her for his gallery in New York, where she exhibited until Hammer’s death in 1985.

From the mid-1950s to 1994, George created about 40 paintings and drawings a year and presented a one-woman show every two years. Her ink drawings became almost as popular as her paintings and were used to decorate invitations to some of Palm Beach’s most prestigious galas.

Her portraits of children were especially popular. Among the families whose members George painted were those of Llwyd Ecclestone, Dimick Reese and Robert Kennedy.

She also created a series portraying clients in their bathtubs, including one of Palm Beacher Rose Sachs.

She also bred purebred English springer spaniels for the show ring.

She is survived by a daughter, Edyne Gordon of Santa Fe, N.M.; and a niece, Sherry G. Dubois of Lake Worth.”
