This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted by Danny Rehmsmeyer:

Emily Muir was born in 1904 in Chicago. She studied art with Richard Lahey at the Art Students League in New York. She married sculptor William Muir and moved to Stonington, Maine in 1939. She was an accomplished painter, sculptor, writer, designer, architect, conservationist and community activist. She was the first woman to serve President Dwight D. Eisenhower's National Commission of Fine Arts and later President Richard Nixon appointed her to the advisory committee for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. She built a substantial career for herself as a painter and a designer of homes.

Although Emily Muir was primarily known as a "Maine artist," in her earlier years she painted quite a number of scenes from the West Indies. She and her husband Bill built dioramas for the Moore-McCormick steamship line which were displayed at street level windows in New York. Thus they were able to sight-see and paint while on Moore-McCormick's payroll.
