Description

Although details regarding her life remain sketchy, Gross-Bettelheim is best known for her prints of industry and urban life, which she apparently began creating after moving to Cleveland in the mid 1920s. During the next decade, she worked under the auspices of the Federal Art Project, a government-sponsored program formed to employ artists during the Great Depression. During the seven-year run of the project, nearly 350 Clevelanders passed through its ranks.
