Biography   Katharine Weems


Born into a life of privilege in Boston, Katharine became a noted animal sculptor who was drawn to the subject matter because of the infinite movements and grace she observed. Her brick carved doors with animals was created for the entrance of the biology laboratory at Harvard University.

She had to struggle against disapproving social pressure in her family and as a woman, for equality with her male colleagues. She attended summer studios of Anna Hyatt Huntington and took lessons from Charles Grafly at the Boston Museum School. Huntington and Brenda Putnam, both working in New York, were especially encouraging to her.

In 1947, she married Carrington Weems and had exhibited as Katharine Ward Lane.
