Elizabeth Gutman Kaye, younger sister of Adele Gutman Nathan, grew up in the same atmosphere of artistic edification as her siblings. Whereas Adele became a director and writer, Elizabeth matured into an artist and performer. She began a career as a soprano, specializing in folk songs.
Her concert performances took place around the East Coast of the United States and in several major capitols of Europe, including Paris and Vienna. In the late 1930s, she developed an interest in painting and slowly this career became paramount in her life.
A series of exhibitions of her watercolors brought her attention in Europe and North America. She set up residence in Italy and after her husband Walter Kaye died, she returned to live near Adele in New York City. She died while on vacation in Jamaica on April 15, 1971.
