James McNeill Whistler (1834 – 1903) was a complicated artist who approached his life and work in a unique, often unorthodox way. At the age of 11 he began studying fine art in Russia and realized art would be his profession. He would later tell people he was born in St. Petersburg, Russia as opposed to his actual birthplace of Lowell, Massachusetts.

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.
