You are here > Online Catalog > Bertha Lum > Artist Biography

Born in Iowa in 1869, Lum trained at the Art Institute of Chicago. She travelled to Japan on her honeymoon when she was 34, and obtained a few tools and materials for woodblock printmaking, along with some rudimentary advice on the process. Upon her return to America she started producing her own prints, and made a second short trip five years later for further studies. Lum then returned in 1911, bringing her family with her, and started hiring carvers and printers to produce her designs.
