Loon with Young by Owen Gromme
Holy Wisdom Monastery is pleased to share a collection of artist’s proofs by Owen Gromme
Owen Gromme was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and was the son of an avid outdoorsman. He was a member of the Art Commission of the City of Milwaukee and was the curator at the Milwaukee Public Museum.
In 1967, Gromme was commissioned to paint a series of wildlife scenes for Marshall & Ilsey Bank of Milwaukee. The project took about two years and provided a complete gallery of his work for the new building which the company was constructing in downtown Milwaukee. Holy Wisdom Monastery received a large set of artist’s proofs from a neighbor in 1999.
Holy Wisdom Monastery has a collection of framed and unframed Gromme artist’s proofs, which are for sale. If you are interested, please contact Nick Traxler at firstname.lastname@example.org, 608-836-1631, x124.
