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.
Edgar Degas was born on July 19, 1834 in Paris, France to a wealthy family, his mother, Celestine Musson de Gas, and his father, Augustin de Gas, a banker. Degas took painting very seriously at a young age and by 18 had turned a room in his house into his painting room.
It was an exciting night at Englewood Elementary School as Duval County Public Schools in Jacksonville prepare families for the celebration of an annual celebration of Carnival. Mardi Gras, as it’s commonly known in America, has roots in in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. United States of America. The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens could not miss this event.
Garden Week kicks off on Monday night with the Petals to Paint reception from 6 to 8 p.m., where guests can enjoy an evening in our gardens with floral interpretations of our art collection in several galleries.
