The Art of Florine Stettheimer.

The Art of Florine Stettheimer.


I am fascinated by the life and art of  Florine Stettheimer, (August 29, 1871 – May 11, 1944). Florine was an American painter, designer, and poet.  I encourage you to read this article to learn more about her. She was not a regular woman of her time.

My attitude is one of love

is all adoration

for all the fringes

all the color

all tinsel creation

I like slippers gold

I like oysters cold

and my garden of mixed flowers

and the sky full of towers

and traffic in the streets

and Maillard’s sweets

and Bendel’s clothes

and Nat Lewis hose

and Tappé’s window arrays

and crystal fixtures

and my pictures

and Walt Disney cartoons.

and colored balloons.

  1. These are so beautiful! Thank you so much for this post! I am going to pin it.

  2. Marvelous Paintings! I really enjoyed looking at all of them.
    Also it reminded me that I have a photo booklet about her dollhouse that was written by John Darcy Noble. It is not surprising that her dollhouse looks just like her paintings. Now I have to dig it out and look at it again. Ha!
    Very Wonderful and Thank You So Much Elsa!
