Biography Anne Congdon
In 1946 the Artist's Association of Nantucket mounted a retrospective exhibition of five artists deemed to be "of national importance." They were Henry S. Eddy, Edgar Jenney, Emerson Tuttle, Anne Ramsdell Congdon and Eastman Johnson. Today, Congdon's expressive, wet-to-wet brushwork in heavy impastos, her brilliant, sometimes exaggerated color, and her impeccable massing of vibrant shapes eloquently express the voice of an artist of consequence.
Born in Nashua NH to Governor George A and Eliza Wilson Ramsdell, Anne Ramsdell Congdon began her art studies at the age of seven. Her endeavor continued at a private school in Worcester, MA, and as a young woman, continued at the Académie Delecluse in Paris.
