Anne Catherine Kuck (1885-1965), daughter of Captain Henry Kuck and Mary Geshe Entleman, was born in Savannah, Georgia. While attending public schools in Savannah, it was noted that she showed an aptitude for drawing and painting. In 1905, she went to Paris to study at the Sorbonne, remaining in Europe for eight years. In 1911, she entered four watercolors in the Spring Salon at the Louvre and won the Silver Palm award. She returned to the United States during World War I, but in later years again lived and painted in Europe, as well as in Hendersonville, North Carolina, and on Wilmington Island near Savannah.
This collection consists of a nine-page scrapbook made of red paperboard. The pages are loose, but two holes on the left margin of each page suggest the scrapbook had once been bound. Small rectangles of paper printed with colored floral motifs, Bible verses, and inspirational messages have been pasted onto the paperboard. Pages 3 and 9 contain original watercolors by Kuck, both with the design elements of miniature landscapes in the upper left portion, flowers in the lower right portion, a Bible verse in the bottom left portion, and a leaf-and-vine border.
Material was acquired from grandson of creator.
