This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Bea Wolper, daughter of the artist:

Ruth Durlacher (Wolper) was born in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1912 and died in 1999 in Norfolk, Virginia) She painted under the name of Durlacher. Her oil portraits are in private homes throughout the United States, The Commonwealth of the Bahamas and Europe. Among her better known works are portraits of HM Queen Elizabeth, HRH Princess Margaret, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and notable Bishops in Virginia and The Bahamas, painted during personal sittings. She had several solo exhibits; enclosed are a few newspaper clippings evidencing same (e.g., first solo exhibit, Munson Gallery, New Haven CT, 1938).

After graduating from the National Park Seminary, Ms. Wolper spent several years in France studying at the LEcole des Beaux Arts. She returned to America and attended the Yale School of Fine Arts. Ms. Wolper was a member of and represented by New York Artists Equity, Portraits Inc., and the Dorothy Wilding Galleries.

In addition to portraits and floral arrangements, her painting included several murals, including those at the Lexington School for the Deaf, New York, New York and the Ranfurly Home for Children, Nassau, Bahamas.

After a career of painting, Ms. Wolper became a noted amateur historian and archaeologist. She wrote a pamphlet, published by the Smithsonian, on the "Landfall of Columbus," was instrumental in erecting a monument on the landing beach of Columbus, started the first pre-Columbian museum in the Bahamas, and was a frequent lecturer on Columbus, pre-Columbian artifacts and Bahamian history. In addition, she authored a controversial booklet offering evidence that Columbus was Greek.
