Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter, muralist. Born in Le Mars, IA on Dec. 23, 1873 of Scottish parents. Luvena was educated in Pittsburgh, KS. During 1910-14 she studied at the AIC under Vanderpoel, Walcott, and Norton. At that school she met artist Edouard Vysekal. They were married in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles in 1914 to paint murals in the Barbara Worth Hotel in El Centro. After settling in California, Mrs. Vysekal further studied with Stanton MacDonald-Wright. In 1922, under the pseudonym Benjamin Blue, she authored Counterfeit Presentations, a series of character sketches of local artists. Upon the death of her husband in 1939, she became director of the Vysekal Gallery in Hollywood. Mrs. Vysekal was a resident of Los Angeles until her death on Jan. 11, 1954. Her sister was sculptor Ella Buchanan. Exh: Friday Morning Club (LA), 1916 (with husband); Calif.
