Biography  
Nancy Maybin Ferguson


Nancy Maybin Ferguson (b. 1872 sometimes listed as 1869-d. 1967)


A plein-air painter known for her colorful townscapes, street scenes and genre depictions of Provincetown, and Truro, Massachusetts, Nancy Maybin Ferguson studied with academic realists Charles Hawthorne and William Merritt Chase at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, in 1902-1903 and 1907-1912.  By the 1920s, Ferguson had gravitated toward the fauvist-inspired work of Arthur Carles and other modernists active at the Academy.

Ferguson won fellowships from the Academy in 1909 and 1929, and prizes in 1911 and 1916.  She was an active member of the Philadelphia Ten, a group of women artists who exhibited through World War II.   ...  Displaying 750 of 2152 characters.
