Edith Ella Baldwin
Edith Ella Baldwin (November 19, 1870, Worcester, Massachusetts – February 21, 1941) was an American painter of portraits and miniatures, a craftswoman, and writer. She studied in Paris at Académie Julian, under William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury; at the Angelo Colarossi studios under Gustave-Claude-Etienne Courtois, also below Julius Rolshoven and Henry Mosler.
At the Salon of the Champ de Mars, she exhibited a portrait in pastel, in 1901; at exhibitions of the Society of American Artists in 1898 and 1899, she exhibited miniatures; also pictures in oils at Worcester, 1903. A store of her writings are held by Duke University. These add together unpublished stories, novels, poetry, and lecture notes, as with ease as diary excerpts. Her writings covered the everlasting themes of adore and religion, but with contemporary issues including automobiles, labor strikes, and women's rights.
