This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Margaret Rogers, known as Gretchen became a painter and pastelist, primarily of portraits and figure studies, but also of still lifes, landscapes, and interiors. This figure and still life painter was a student of Edmund Tarbell at the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts from 1900 to 1907.

She was one of the most promising young artists of the early 20th century in Boston. Her works are sensitively and carefully painted; she used subtle gradations in light and dark rather than harsh juxtapositions of color. She quickly became a popular portraitist and figure painter and received praise for her work. As early as 1911, she exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and she became a frequent contributor to annual exhibitions at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery. In 1915, she won silver medals at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International - San Francisco Exposition. In the 1930s, she submerged her career to domesticity and never painted again.

Biography from Pierce Galleries, Inc.:
Gretchen W. Rogers (American, 1881-1967):

Gretchen Rogers was born in Boston in 1881. She studied with Edmund C. Tarbell and Frank W. Benson at the Museum School in Boston (1898-1906) and she became one of the most proficient painters from the Boston tradition. Typically painting realistic portraits and interior genres with skill, her brushwork was refined and elegant with softened edges and a true sense of color harmonies as they relate to nature.

Rogers was given one-woman shows at the Guild of Boston Artists in 1917 and 1928. She maintained studios in Boston and Gloucester and often painted with Jane Peterson and Marguerite S. Pearson.

Memberships: Guild of Boston Artists and the American Federation of Arts.
Awards: Sears Prize, MFA School (1901); Silver medal, Pan-Pacific Exposition, San Francisco (1915).

Rogers was a semi-professional tennis player. She was an exceedingly private person who shied away from publicity. She was considered one of the most talented of the Boston School. Her work is represented in the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston).

Patricia Jobe Pierce

Biography from O'Leary Antiques Auctions:
One of the leading figures in the Arts & Crafts movement, Gretchen (Margaret) Rogers was born and educated in Boston.  Among her teachers was Albert Munsell, inventor of the Munsell color system, an early attempt to classify color by value and hue.  

She produced both jewelry and decorative objects, often with saw-pierced rims and enameled interiors.

In 1915 Rogers was awarded the Society of Arts and Crafts Boston's Medal of Excellence.
