Glenna Latimer (1898-1980) was a painter in Norfolk, Va. Latimer was best known for her definitive portraits, but worked in landscapes and mural painting as well. A scholarship for her work enabled her to attend the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia for four years. She was the first president of the Norfolk Art Corner.
The lender, Davies, is Latimer's husband.
