This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Elisabeth Gordon Chandler, NA, FSS Professor of Sculpture

National Academician, FNSS. Founder of the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts in 1976. Studied sculpture with Edmondo Quattrocchi and anatomy under Robert Beverly Hale at Art Students League.  Known widely for portraiture and medallic work, she has received numerous awards.  She has done bronze reliefs of aircraft carriers and other military subjects and portrait busts of prominent figures including Adlai Stevenson and John Jay. 

Ms. Chandler's sculpture is in Brookgreen Gardens, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Columbia University, Princeton University, Queen Anne County courthouse in Court House Square, Maryland, Hall of Fame for Great Americans, Aircraft Carrier Forrestal and numerous other major institutions. She is listed in Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in America and other books.

Elisabeth Gordon Chandler, mentor, teacher and friend to many, passed away at the age of 93, on November 29, 2006 at Middlesex Memorial Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut.  She would have taught a class the next day.

Frederick Osborne, President of the Lyme Academy College said “Elisabeth founded the Academy when representational art and the traditional education of artists was disappearing in the Western world.  Her vision through the academy has played a major role in reviving these legacies."

“She was a Renaissance woman, who firmly but gently led by the example of her own principled life and gave of herself with boundless generosity.  She was a national treasure whose inspiration will always be embodied in the spirit of this Academy College.”
