If you go to the Detroit Institute of Art’s website, object number 82.250, a gouache and watercolor work titled “The Espalier Pear” [the work has an alternate title “Dusty in the Chair”], is by the creator of this week’s recipe for foolproof fudge, Sali Frantz [Sarah Stanley Frantz]. She was born in Detroit in 1893 - her grandfather was the artist John Mix Stanley. After graduating with a degree in landscape architecture from the University of Michigan, she taught occupational therapy and did freelance landscape architectural work.
