Louise Upton Brumback was born in Rochester, New York, and was greatly influenced by William Merritt Chase at his Summer Art School in Shinnecock, Long Island. Brumback ultimately settled in Kansas City, Missouri and exhibited there for the first time in 1915, when she was awarded the first Moore Prize given to artists of Kansas City. She spent many summers painting in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and made several painting trips to California. In 1920 she moved east and divided her time between Gloucester and New York City. Dogtown, Cape Ann, Massachusetts memorializes the time that Brumback spent on the coast of Massachusetts, and it is housed in its original frame.
