Biography   Mary Bowditch


Mary Orne Bowditch   (1883 - 1971)

Mary Orne Bowditch, known as Mea or Orne, studied sculpture at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School* with Bela Pratt and at the Academie Colarossi* in Paris with Antonin Injalbert and Paul Wayland Bartlett. 

She became best-known for her sculpted portraits, usually done in marble, terracotta*, and plaster, which tend to have a smooth finish.  Descended from a prominent Boston family, Bowditch was forced to balance her career with a rigorous social schedule.  Nonetheless, Bowditch's relatively few existing sculptures are appealing in their quiet elegance.
