Life Dates1893 - 1966
BiographyRuth Raemisch began her studies in Berlin at the School of Arts and Crafts with French artist, Bastanier, in 1912. Here, Raemisch was given a formal foundation of fine craftsmanship. She eventually moved to Rhode Island, where she started her own studio, working primarily in techniques such as cloisonne and grisaille (monochromatic painting in gray tones.) One of the earliest American artists to work with enamels, Raemisch favored it over paint as enameling possessed equal versatility with superior luminosity. Raemisch began her process with extremely detailed preparatory drawings in watercolor.
