This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in San Francisco, CA on Sept. 19, 1872, the daughter of Cornelia Edgerton and Franklin Jay Lewis. Raised in an atmosphere of culture, Mary's parents were fine musicians. As a child she studied art and music with her father and in the 1890s studied painting with Wm F. Jackson at Sacramento's Crocker Art Gallery. She was among Wm M. Chase's summer students in Carmel in 1914. Coming from a long line of musicians, she was also a cellist who performed for five years at the Del Monte Hotel in Monterey. She died in Sacramento on Sept. 25, 1953 having spent most of her life there. An Impressionist, her works show the influence of Chase. Exh: Calif.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mary Lewis was born in 1872 in San Francisco, California. As a youth she was exposed to art and music through her artistic parents. She studied painting under W.F. Jackson in the 1890s at the Crocker Art Gallery in Sacramento, California. During the summer she attended classes taught by William Merritt Chase in Carmel. As an accomplished cellist Lewis performed for five years at the Hotel Del Monte in Monterey. Her music career enabled her to perform outside of Sacramento in places such as Lake Tahoe and Paso Robles, and these areas inspired many of her paintings. She exhibited three works at the Golden Gate Park Memorial Museum in 1915. She also exhibited at the Sacramento Hotel in 1911 with her father and later between1930 and 1947 showed her artwork at the Kingsley Art Club and the Crocker Art Gallery in Sacramento. Mary Lewis died in Sacramento, California in 1953.
