This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Florence Wilkins Furst   (1885-1955)

“Mrs. Furst is a painter with a finely developed technique.  Her work is among the most interesting and beautiful seen in some time…In turning to the still life arrangements, one is met by beauty and gorgeous texture.  Mrs. Furst’s sense of composition is a keen joy…in the landscapes, too, one feels her unfailing flair for color.  They have atmosphere, charm and beauty.”  Eleanor Jewett, Chicago Tribune.  Undated (prior to 1933).

Quoted from:Catalog: Century of Progress exhibition of artists of Illinois.1933
