Ida Gertrude Eise was trained at Elam School of Art from 1905 to 1915. From 1916 to 1919, she taught art at New Plymouth Technical College. She worked at Elam from 1920 to 1956, and again, briefly, from 1959 to 1960. She spent the years 1961 to 1962 touring in the South Pacific, Australia, and Europe. Much of her work was devoted to landscape painting in the Tāmaki Makaurau and Te Tai Tokerau areas. Like A. Lois White, Eise had the misfortune to remain on the Elam staff long after her aesthetic values were regarded as relevant by most students. In neither case, however, does this fact diminish the artists’ abilities.
