This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Agatha Kirsch was born in Creston, Iowa but came to Seattle around 1895.   She studied with Ella Shepard Bush and at the University of Washington, Seattle.

Kirsch worked as a commercial illustrator for Seattle department stores for several years and became a very successful portrait painter, specializing in the subjects of children and young adults.

Her early paintings are Impressionistic depictions of Northwest landscapes and still life.

She exhibited in the early Northwest Annuals at the Seattle Fine Arts Society; the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, 1915; the Seattle Art Museum, and the Society of Independent Artists, New York.  She was a longtime member of Women Painters of Washington.

Kirsch worked on the Seattle WPA (Works Progress Administration) and produced paintings and lithographs, of which the best known is Artists At Work, depicting two WPA artists at a drawing table.  She also did a series of drawings for the Index of American Design.

Her work is in the collection of the University of Oregon, Museum of Art, the Newark Museum, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Burke Museum, University of Washington and the Pioneer Association of Washington.

Written and submitted September 2005 by David Martin, Martin-Zambito Fine Art, Seattle, Washington.
