  1. I have a charcoal drawing signed Ficke- can you give me more information about the artist? The drawing was given to me by grandfather after he passed. He was French and traveled extensively. Thank you Stephanie.

  2. Hi there
    I’m researching the artist Gladys Brown Ficke as I have a painting of Shoreham UK from the 1950s which I believe may be by her. I’m really interested to see examples of other work by her, but have failed completely to find anything. I wonder if you can help. I’d be happy to send you an image of the work I have.
    Best regards
    Phil Trumble

  3. A friend and I were driving on a dirt road in North Hillsdale, NY. We saw a headstone with both Gladys B. Dixie and Arthur Fick. It was in the woods, about 20 feet off the road. Are they buried there?

    • Hi Kitty, Congratulations on finding the last resting place of Arthur Davison Ficke (and, presumably, his second wife Gladys Brown Ficke). According to “Findagrave“, Ficke is indeed buried at the Ficke estate, Hardhack, in Hillsdale, New York. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  4. Hi. I have a beautiful painting by Gladys Brown. I can’t find any other of her paintings online.
    It looks like a scene from either Mexico or CA.
    Would you have any info on her?
    Thank you,
