This biography from the Archives of AskART:
In 1871 Annie Matthews was born (around Boston) and given the nickname, Nanna. Having spent her younger years in Rome she was influenced and intrigued with the Vatican collections. Later she returned to Boston, trained under Anna Klumpke, and then in Paris at the Academie Julian with William Adolphe Bouguereau, and again in Boston at the MFA School from 1895 to 1896 and from 1903 to 1906. She exhibited her paintings and miniatures, none of which are known today, at the National Academy of Design, the Boston Art Club, and the Art Institute of Chicago. By 1900, she was married to the painter, Wallace Bryant.

Bryant began to sculpt around 1912, at the age of forty-one, sculpture had always interested her but she painted because of her love of color. However, she created a style that she called "painting in marble," where she used surface texture to portray her subject's movement, emotion, and vitality. Although she produced some sculpted portraits, the bulk of her work depicts mythological figures of the Beaux-Arts type that she would have seen as a student in Boston and Paris.

Bryant exhibited her sculpture regularly at the annual exhibitions of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the National Academy of Design, and the Copley Society in Boston; her first of several solo shows was held at the Sculptors' Gallery in New York in 1920. She also continued to exhibit her paintings, although less frequently than her sculpture. Nanna B. Matthews Bryant died in Boston, 1933.
