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 below 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 collection of her writings are held by Duke University. These include unpublished stories, novels, poetry, and lecture notes, as without difficulty as diary excerpts. Her writings covered the perpetual themes of adore and religion, but in addition to contemporary issues including automobiles, labor strikes, and women's rights.
