This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter of social protest murals and sculptor of mod-figurative works, Mary Stone was a sculptor on the New York Federal Arts Project during the Depression.

She was a student at the Art Students League when she was only 15, and later attended the Traphagen School of Fashion and Design in New York City.  However, extra classes at the New School of Social Research turned her interest to sculpture.  One of her pieces, entered by teacher Aaron Goodleman, won a prize at a Metropolitan Museum competition, and this success helped her get the job with the Federal Arts Project.  Among her assignments were teaching children art at the Harlem Center and other New York City settlements. In 1940, she assisted sculptor Caesar Stea.

In 1941, she left the project and diverted much of her energy to social protest movements, and her sculpture such as "War and The Bowery" reflected her interest.  She married into a wealthy Greek family named Galandrous, but left the marriage after five years.  She later married writer Ed Stone, and they lived in Sausalito and started a family.  She continued sculpting and won recognition at the Oakland Museum, but she worked primarily during those years as a painter, completing 55 murals about social issues such as civil rights, child labor, the Vietnam War, etc.
