This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New Haven, Connecticut, Achsah Barlow became a painter of figure and religious symbolic subjects.  She graduated from Smith College in 1902, and then moved to New York City where she studied at the New York School of Art and with Robert Henri at the Art Students League.  In 1905, she went to Paris and studied figure painting from live models with Lucien Simon. 

Through the writer, Vachel Lindsay, she met the artist Earl Brewster, and they married in 1910.  They had a daughter named Harwood, whom Achsah frequently used as a model in her paintings.  From the time of their marriage until 1936, the Brewsters traveled frequently, living much of the time in Italy and France and socializing with many authors and writers such as Willa Cather and D.H. Lawrence.

In 1936, just before Harwood married, the Brewster moved to Almora, India, where a valued collection of their paintings is now held in the Government Museum and Art Gallery in Chandigarh. The Brewsters were led to India because of their deep interest  in Buddhism, and Earl Brewster, who died in India in 1945, authored at least one book on this subject.

Achsah Brewster's paintings were exhibited in India at the Roerich Centre of Art and Culture in Allahabad.
