Biography from Union Station Kansas City/Kansas City Museum:
This biography was submitted by Lisa Shockley, Collections Technician at Union Station Kansas City/Kansas City Museum (from information supplied by artist's daughter Helen King Boyer)

Louise Rive King (nee Miller) Boyer was born 10/30/1890 in Pittsburgh, PA. She began painting and drawing at the age of 7 and was a member of the first graduating class in Painting & Design from the Carnegie Institute of Technology (1913).

She married architect Ernest Wilson Boyer, and they had two children: Helen King Boyer, also an artist, and Taylor M. Boyer. Louise Boyer also studied art history at the University of Pittsburgh and she eventually became a designer, painter and graphic artist.

After her husband's death in 1949, she moved to New York City where she and her daughter worked together on silk painting. Among her designs were the Du Pont Memorial Soaring Trophy (1947) and beam decorations for the Sacred Heart Church in Pittsburgh. She and her daughter moved to Kansas City, MO in 1960 and the last years of her life were devoted to doing miniature engrossing on illuminated manuscripts.

She died in Kansas City, Missouri on 4/17/1976. According to her daughter, Helen King Boyer, examples of Louise Rive King Boyer's work are in the permanent collections of the Carnegie Museum, Library of Congress, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Kansas City Museum, among others.
