|Biography from R.H. Love Galleries:|
|Harriette Bowdoin studied art under Henry Snell and Elliott
Daingerfield in New York, where she spent most of her life.
Further instruction came from Frank Brangwyn in London. Bowdoin
knew the American post-impressionist Jane Peterson, who also studied
with Brangwyn. The two women artists probably traveled to Venice
together in 1908. Both show a similar technique with exciting
color and bold, spontaneous brushwork. |
Bowdoin exhibited her works at the Art Institute of Chicago (1911-18),
at the National Academy of Design (1913-20), at the Panama-Pacific
International Exposition, and at the Society of Independent Artists in
1917. She joined the National Association of Women Painters and
Sculptors, the American Watercolor Society, and the New York Society of
Bowdoin died in 1947.
