    Nicholas Nauta was born in Holland around 1872 and he immigrated to America in 1892. We know he worked as an apprentice and as a journeyman but no other pieces are known by him. He lived in Wichita from 1915 to the 1930's. He is listed in the Biographical Dictionary of Kansas Artists (active before 1945).
