Happy Birthday: Carolyn Tyler
Miniature painter Carolyn Tyler was born on August 3rd.
She's another artist who I can't find much information on. She studied at the Art Institute of Chicago (also my alma mater) and exhibited there at their annual showcase of art by the Chicago Society of Miniature Painters. The old catalogues can be found here and have some awesome old pictures including the maps of the Art Institute below.
I also found this article from a 1935 Chicago Tribune praising Carolyn Tyler's miniatures.
I could only find these three pieces by the artist. Those frames are stunning and the reflective yellow light on the portrait below is beautiful.
