Biography from Indiana State Museum:

“Indiana, Benton County, Oxford; Marion County, Indianapolis. 

Alice Atkinson Forsyth (1872 - 1968) was born in Oxford, Benton County, Indiana. She was orphaned by age 15, and spent her teenage years away from home, attending St. Mary’s Hall in Indianapolis. After graduating in 1892, she and her brother, David, moved to Chicago where Alice enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago.

While she was there, she studied with John Vanderpoel and Frederick Freer.  She moved back to Indiana in 1896 and began teaching art at Vincennes College. However, she quickly realized that teaching did not interest her, and she relocated to Indianapolis to study at the Indiana School of Art with William Forsyth.

William and Alice married during a painting trip along the Ohio River that Forsyth had organized in the fall of 1897.  Alice began to exhibit her work soon after the marriage, focusing primarily on wooded and rural landscapes. By 1906, after the birth of three children including artist Constance Forsyth, Alice stopped painting but managed to stay well-informed and actively involved in the local and national art world, regularly hosting professional artists and local art students in their home.”

 

This provenance was compiled Curator of Fine Art and the Art & Culture Collections Manager from discussions with the artist’s granddaughter, Susan Forsyth Selby Sklar, and provenance from our own collection of William Forsyth and Constance Forsyth artworks.
