This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, sent by Dan Pomykala, is an excerpt from the book: "Content in a Garden" by Candace Wheeler, mother of the artist:

The main parlor on the east of the Woman's Building was decorated and furnished by the women of Cincinnati, under the direction of Miss Agnes Pitman, and is both exquisite and harmonious in tint. A frieze of conventionalized roses painted on canvas surrounds the room, and all the furnishings blend in the rosy colorings. On either side of this are smaller parlors which have been furnished and decorated by the women of California, Kentucky and Connecticut. On the west of the gallery is the library, where are to be found the literary works of women of all countries and periods.

This beautiful room was furnished and decorated by the women of New York. The ceiling is one of the most important and beautiful pieces of work done by any woman in recent times, and was executed by Mrs. Dora Wheeler Keith, the talented daughter of Mrs. Candace Wheeler, the color director of the Woman's Building, to whose artistic taste and experienced judgment are due so many of the fine color effects to be found in its interior. (http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/hayes/flat/chapter-05.html)

The Connecticut chamber and the woman's library open from the western corridors. In the decorations of the library is a subtle combination of colors, the ceiling, painted by Dora Wheeler Keith, daughter of Mrs. Candace Wheeler, resembling the frescoes of some old Venetian palace, although the symbolic treatment is appropriate to the purpose. In the central oval, enclosed by a wreath of white lilies, literature is typified by a shapely woman, science by a man in scholastic garb, and imagination by an angel with its outstretched wings. Between this oval and the Venetian border which encloses the ceiling, are loops and folds of drapery in softly blended hues representing the tints of sky and landscape, and at the four corners are medallions symbolic of history, romance, poetry....http://columbus.gl.iit.edu/bookfair/ch11.htmldrama.
