This biography has been provided by Patti Cassidy, Researcher

Bashka Paeff (1893-1979) was known as the "Subway sculptor" because of the
pieces she modeled while working her way through art school at the Park
Street T station in Boston.

She was born in Minsk, Russia and moved to Boston with her parents as a child. She studied at the Boston Museum School with Bela Pratt in 1914, and worked at the McDowell Colony. She was especially known for realistic animal sculptures as well as war memorials, fountains and portraits. She was a fellow of the National Sculpture Society and in 1961 received the Daniel Chester French Award for sculpture in the classical tradition.
