This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Francesca Woodman (1958-1981)

Francesca Woodman was born April 3, 1958, in Denver, Colorado, to well-known artists George Woodman and Betty Woodman.

Woodman attended public school in Boulder, Colorado, between 1963 and 1971 except for second grade in Italy.  She began high school in 1972 at the private Massachusetts boarding school Abbot Academy, where she began to develop her photographic skills.  Abbot Academy merged with Phillips Academy in 1973; Woodman graduated from the public Boulder High School in 1975.

Beginning in 1975, Woodman attended the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence, Rhode Island.  She studied in Rome, Italy between 1977 and 1978 in an RISD honors program.  She went back to Rhode Island in late 1978 to graduate from RISD.

Woodman moved to New York City in 1979.  After spending summer 1979 in Stanwood, Washington, she returned to New York. There, "to make a career in photography" she sent portfolios of her work to fashion photographers.  In summer 1980 she was an artist-in-residence at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire.

In late 1980 Woodman became depressed and on January 19, 1981, she committed suicide by jumping out a loft window in New York.

Many of Woodman's images are untitled and are known only by a location and date.
