This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Harriette Bowdoin was born in South Hadley Falls, Massachusetts.  She had a varied and very artistic career.  Known as a painter, illustrator, and worker in crafts and as a teacher she spent most of her adult life in and around New York City.

Bowdoin studied painting with Sir Frank Brangwyn in France and with Henry Snell and Elliott Daingerfield in New York.  Her wonderful and sensitive impressionist renderings of interior motifs endear her to that movement at the turn of the century.

She exhibited two paintings in the 1917 exhibit of the Society of Independent Artists, listing her address at the time as studio 417, 1947 Broadway, New York. One of the paintings was illustrated in the catalogue for this exhibition.

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 Painters. 

Bowdoin died in 1947.
