"Born in Connecticut of Czechoslovakian parents, Anne Kutka received her formal art education from Kenneth Hayes Miller, Kimon Nicolaides and Eugene Fitsch at teh Art Students League in New York City in the 1920s. She won two consecutive Tiffany Foundation scholarships and three traveling scholarships sponsored by the Gladys Roosevelt Dick (GRD) Studio Gallery in New York City, which she also managed. She met her future husband, the artist David McCosh (1903-1980), while painting at the Tiffany Foundation's Oyster Bay retreat. After marrying in 1934, the couple moved to Eugene, Oregon where David McCosh had received a teaching appointment at the University of Oregon. The artist (who generally painted under her maiden name) lived and worked in Eugene for most of the rest of her life, producing and exhibiting extensively throughout the United States. Among her exhibition credits are the Salons of America; Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; the Seattle, Portland, Denver and Tacoma Art Museums; Art Institute of Chicago; Metropolitan Museum of Art and the University of Oregon Museum of Art." excerpt from the book titled "Painting the American Scene: American Art of the Thirties and Forties" by Arthur D.
