This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Atkinson, New Hampshire, Anne Carleton became known for her paintings of beach scenes and objects in nature, and her goal was to have an independent style. She was also an art teacher and positions included the Woodbury Summer School in Ogunquit, Maine, and from 1913 taught in the public schools in Lynn, Marblehead, and Needham, Massachusetts.

She began art studies at the Massachusetts Normal Art School in Boston. Charles Woodbury had the most influence on her painting, teaching her broad brush strokes to achieve movement and depth. From 1927 to 1929, she took his summer classes in Ogunquit, Maine, and she also taught classes with him. She painted the beaches and coastal areas of Maine and achieved a unique impressionism. Frequent painting companions were Gertrude Fiske, Jane Peterson, and Mabel Woodward.

Biography from Pierce Galleries, Inc.:
Anne Carleton (American, 1878-1968) - Painter of the Beach:

ANNE CARLETON was born in Atkinson, New Hampshire in 1878 and was educated at the Mass Normal Art School in Boston, Vesper George School of Art (Boston, post-graduate in Design), Harvard University under H.H. Clark and Ross (1901), Columbia Summer School for Art (1904), Columbia University art program to England and Greece (1906, studying with Powers, Shaw, Babcock Wright and Rosenbush), Connah Institute (1912), private instruction with Jay Hambridge and G. Ripley, NY (1913), drawing at Boston University (1927) and extensive private study with Charles H. Woodbury in Gloucester, MA from 1915 and 1927-29.

Wanting to remain modern and insistent upon learning continuously, Carleton also studied sculpture at the Ecole d'arts in Paris with Archipenko and took private lessons from Bernard Karfiol and Carl Nelson in 1931, and by the end of her life she was an abstract expressionist.

She was a member of the Boston Society of Independent Artists, Art Students League (NY), American Artists Professional League (NY), Boston's Copley Society, Massachusetts Art Alumni, Marblehead Art Association (MA), Ogunquit Art Association (ME) and elsewhere.

She is famous for her fluent brushwork in the style of the post-impressionists. Her robust colors and forceful execution of oil pigments are remarkably close to the work of one mentor, Charles H. Woodbury. She is best known for her beach and WPA scenes in Gloucester, Rockport, Ogunquit and Portsmouth, NH.

After devoting her life to art and teaching, Anne Carleton died in Massachusetts in 1968, having never married. In the 1970s Pierce Galleries, Inc. of Hingham, MA purchased her estate of over 250 paintings of the American beach and of Maine. In 1976 the gallery published a series of three brochures on the artist, beginning with "Anne Carleton, Painter of the American Beach" in 1977.
