Anne Goldthwaite (1869–1944) was an American artist and an advocate of women's rights and equal rights.

Biography[edit]

Goldthwaite was born in 1869 in Montgomery, Alabama,[1] the daughter of a captain in the Confederate army. Goldthwaite studied under Walter Shirlaw in New York. She went to Paris in 1907 and immediately joined the artistic crowd after meeting Gertrude Stein. She created many prints there before returning to America just prior to the outbreak of the first World War. In 1913 her work was chosen for exhibition in the Armory Show.[2]

From 1922 until 1944 she taught and took commissions from her residence in New York. Amongst her commissions was Woodrow Wilson. Every summer she would return to Montgomery where she was known for her pictures featuring African Americans.[3]
