This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Greta Allen, who is sometimes listed under her married name Dietz, was born in Boston in 1881.  At the Massachusetts Normal Art School she took elementary lessons from Joseph R. DeCamp, then Frank Benson was her teacher at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  Although her work seems to be only in private collections today, Allen exhibited at the Boston Art Club, at the Copley Society and at the Boston Society of Arts and Crafts between 1897 and 1927. Her Portrait of a Boy was featured at the Pennsylvania Academy’s annual exhibition of 1918. 

Allen, who eventually taught art, had a solo show in 1930 in Milwaukee. The style of her genteel images relates to that of her teacher Benson. Allen was also a talented watercolor painter and we know that she worked at some point in Provincetown. Two works by Allen are in the Louise and Allan Sellars Collection (See Art by American Women: Selections from the Collection of Louise and Allan Sellars. Exh. cat. Gainesville, GA: Brenau College, 1991, p. 15).

Written and submitted by Michael Preston Worley, Ph.D.

Born in Boston, Greta Allen became a portraitist who spent most of her life painting and teaching in Boston and West Gouldsboro, Maine.  She was a student of Joseph DeCamp and Frank Benson at the Massachusetts School of Art and studied with Frank Benson at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School.

She exhibited her painting at the Copley Society in Boston and the Boston Art Club and later at galleries and museums in Boston.
