Donna Schuster (1883-1953) was a noted American oil and watercolor painter integral to California Impressionism in the early 1900s. She earned a silver medal for watercolor at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, which was shown at the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art in 1914. In the early 1920’s she taught at the Otis Art Institute and built a studio home in Griffith Park, in the Los Angeles area where she remained for the rest of her life. Her Impressionistic style was most emphasized in her paintings of people, landscapes, still-lifes, and cityscapes. Most of her works displayed her recognizable brushwork but her later work took on more Cubist and Abstract Expressionist characteristics.
