This biography from the Archives of AskART:
It was not until the early 1920s, when she was around thirty years of age, that Cornelia van Auken Chapin decided to become a sculptor, studying with Gail Corbett. Earlier, she had traveled in Europe and learned to fly an airplane. From 1934 to 1939, until World War II, she lived in Paris, exhibiting and studying stone carving with Hernandez.

Specializing in the direct carving of animals, Chapin, in 1937, won the second grand prize of the Paris Exposition, and was elected to the Salon d'Automne. In 1936, she had won the Anna Hyatt Huntington Prize of the National Association of Women Artists in New York City. During World War II, Chapin was a founding member of Artists for Victory.

She exhibited on occasion with The Philadelphia Ten, the group of women artists that eventually numbered thirty. Chapin was one of only three of the women to gain membership in the National Academy of Design in New York City, elected Associate in 1940, Academician in 1945.

Chapin and bronze portrait and figurative sculptor, Marion Sanford, 1904-1987, were companions, sharing the former studio of Gutzon Borglum, sculptor of the four monumental Presidential heads on Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Her sculpture may be found in the collections of the Zoological Gardens, Washington, D.C.; Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina; Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York City; Brooklyn Museum, New York City; and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia.

Cornelia van Auken Chapin died in 1972.
