This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Edith Watson was born into an artistic and literary Connecticut family, and grew up in an atmosphere that encouraged professional accomplishment by women. Her sister Amelia Montague Watson (1856-1934) was a successful watercolor painter. Edith's photographs established her as one of the leading art photographers of her era, and she is most famous for her images of Canada. Many of the best of these photographs were published in book form in "Romantic Canada" (1922) with text authored by Edith's life companion, Victoria Hayward from Bermuda. They were friends of Wilfred Grenfell, who worked for many years with the people of Labrador, and Edith's photographs of that region's people and places are highly regarded.

The Watson sisters owned a summer cottage on Martha's Vineyard, where they entertained many friends from the world of arts and letters. They also inherited their birthplace at East Windsor Hill, Connecticut where sojourned such important figures as Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mark Twain, Celia Thaxter, Owen Wister, and Helen
Hunt Jackson.

The Watson sisters were close friends of artist Helen Hyde (1868-1919) and of photographer, author, and book illustrator Margaret Warner Morley (1858-1923). Edith's painting is mostly in the medium of watercolor, depicting landscapes of shores in New England and Canada.

A key publication about this artist is authored by Frances Rooney: "Working Light: The Wandering Life of Photographer Edith S. Watson" (Ottawa, Carleton University Press, 1996)

Submitted June 2004 by Michael McCue, Asheville, North Carolina. He is a collector of work by this artist.
