Award-winning author David Michaelis has written a compelling essay chronicling Anne’s life and career in Provincetown as well as providing historical background on Anne’s grandfather, Max Bohm, a respected turn-of-the-century Impressionist painter. Writer/producer Emily Lau, known for her work for the History Channel and the Discovery Network wrote, directed and produced a 30-minute documentary DVD that intimately explores the life and working process of the artist who has found national acclaim for her art.
