Anne Goldthwaite (1869–1944) was an American painter and printmaker and an advocate of women's rights and equal rights.[1]

Biography[edit]

Goldthwaite was born in 1869 in Montgomery, Alabama,[2] the daughter of a captain in the Confederate army. Goldthwaite studied under Walter Shirlaw in New York[3] at the National Academy of Design.[4] She went to Paris in 1907 and immediately joined the artistic crowd after meeting Gertrude Stein.[3] Goldthwaite studied under Charles Guérin.[4] 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.[3]

From 1922 until 1944 she taught and took commissions from her residence in New York. Amongst those who commissioned her work was Woodrow Wilson. She was commissioned by the Treasury Section of Fine Art, a New Deal agency, to paint two murals. In 1937 she completed The Letter Box in Atmore, Alabama and in 1939 The Road to Muskegee in Tuskegee, Alabama.[5] Every summer she would return to Montgomery where she was known for her pictures featuring African Americans,[6] and was considered a "recorder of the South's past."[4]
