A very good impression.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1909, Markham not only worked as an artist but also as an actress. During the 1930s, Markham's prints focused on social realist scenes of New York. She worked in the WPA Federal Art Project's graphic arts division and also created artwork to exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair in New York.
