(Mary) Edmonia Lewis was a Neo-Classical sculptor of figural work in carved marble. The daughter of a Chippewa Indian mother and a black father she experienced much discrimination. Her work was expressive of the emotions she felt from these experiences.

She was born in 1845 near Albany, New York where she was orphaned at age four and raised by her mother's tribe with whom she had a nomadic existence until she was twelve. In 1856, with the support of some abolitionists, she enrolled at Obe (showing 500 of 8768 characters).
