Myra V. Musselman-Carr

Biography from the Archives of askART

Myra Musselman-Carr was born November 27 1871 in Scott County, the daughter of Penelope "Neppie" Burgess and Joseph Franklin Musselman. She married Harry Rupert Carr, and had a son, Harry Rupert Jr. Myra Musselman-Carr is not to be confused with M. Emma Musselman, born 1880 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Musselman-Carr was active in Lexington, Kentucky until 1908 and then moved to New York state where she lived both in New York City and Woodstock where she was active in the Art Association.

She studied at the Art Students League, the Cincinnati Art School, and the Bourdelle in Paris and exhibited in the 1913 Armory Show in New York, which combined works of European avant-garde modernism with examples of often academic American art. Carr's sculpture, "Indian Grinding Corn," was in the Armory entrance-way in Gallery A, devoted to American sculpture and decorative art.

She was a direct carver of marble and was co-owner and teacher of sculpture at the Modern Art School on Washington Square in New York City.

She later married painter Charles Bateman (b. 1890).
