Sommer’s (1905–1999) peripatetic life as well as multifaceted work defy easy classification. He was born in Italy to German speaking parents, then grew up in Brazil, and spoke five languages fluently by the time he received his master’s degree in landscape architecture from Cornell University. Then, in 1931, after being diagnosed with TB, he moved permanently to the United States with his American wife, Frances (1904–1999). The couple then settled in 1935 in the small town of Prescott, Arizona, where Frances was a social worker. There, far from metropolitan cultural hubs, the two lived for over sixty years. – National Gallery of Art
