This print features the Laura Musser Museum in Muscatine, Iowa.
The gift of the Musser Mansion in 1965 by the heirs of Laura Musser, to be used as a memorial art gallery and museum was the beginning of an art museum facility in Muscatine.
The Musser Mansion was designed by Muscatine architect Henry W. Zeidler and completed by Peter Musser in 1908 for his daughter Laura and her husband Edwin L. McColm. Built in the Edwardian style, the mansion contains twelve rooms flanking a generous central hall on the first and second floors. Architectural details including mantelpieces, stained glass windows, woodwork, light fixtures and hardware are distinctive examples of the period. An elevator provides access to all levels.
As you enter the mansion you will see a portrait of Laura Musser (oil on canvas) painted c.1907 by Tris Meran, a French artist, after a photograph taken of her at age 29 (1906).
