This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Elizabeth Grandin (1889-1970)

Born in Hamden, New York, she was a descendant of one of Hunterdon County's oldest families and became a recognized artist early in the century when few women were acknowledged.

Grandin received her first art instruction as a young child at Miss Dana's School in Morristown.  She later studied art in Paris, Madrid and New York, working with such famous artists as Robert Henri, William Merritt Chase, John Sloan and Rockwell Kent.  While living in Paris, she opened an art studio and later operated another studio in New York.  She was one of the founders of the New York Society of Women Artists.

Working alongside the Ashcan School pioneers in the early 1900s, Grandin painted scenes of New York City and the immigrant experience in America.  She followed the artistic rules set forth by modern masters such as Henri, John Sloan, George Luks, and Paul Cezanne as she used color to capture three-dimensional form.

She was instrumental in opening and financing the Grandin Library (named after her uncle Daniel Grandin) in Clinton, New Jersey.  She also left her estate to the Library Endowment Fund.
