Lillian Bertha Hulsmann, 1885 - 1966 a daughter of Henry and Albertina Glende Hulsmann. She married Otto Miller about 1910 in Chicago. Her occupation in the 1910 Chicago census was a self employed "artist, landscape". There is a great similarity between her work and the work of her father, Henry Hulsmann, a prolific Chicago artist, so it seems likely that she was his student. Differentiating Lillian's work from that of her father is difficult when she signed using her maiden name.
This remarkable artwork is extremely well painted with fine details, so it looks almost like a photograph, most likely one of the best of the artworks of Lilliana Hulsmann.
