#5WomenArtists – Ellen Biddle Shipman

Apr

21

When Ms. Cummer hired Ellen Biddle Shipman in 1931 to embellish her property, she was reaching out to one of the most respected and sought-after landscape architect in the country. Shipman was part of a generation that succeeded in breaking into a largely male-dominated field, and her clients included famous American magnates such as the Fords and the Astors. Her gardens often appeared in magazines, and by 1933 House & Garden had named her the “Dean of Women Landscape Architects”. She shared her passion through many lectures and completed more than 600 projects.
