Queer Places:
Calvary Cemetery, 1721 Duck Creek Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45207

Anna Seaton Schmidt (1859 – January 19, 1924) was a successful writer and lecturer on art and wrote passionate articles about Cincinnati painter Elizabeth Nourse and her art for international art periodicals and American newspapers. She would often meet up with Elizabeth and Elizabeth’s sister, Louise, in Paris and went with them on painting trips throughout Europe.

In the summer of 1889 Anna, Louise and Elizabeth travelled north from Paris to Picardy and visited the Etaples art colony.

Schmidt wrote Elizabeth Nourse: The Work of an Eminent Artist in France.

Schmidt was for many years a prominent summer resident of East Gloucester. She was born in Covington, KY, and died in Washington, DC. She is buried at Calvary Cemetery.
