Alice Boughton (1865-1943)

Artist of 8 portraits
Alice Boughton opened her own portrait studio in New York in 1890, and her subjects were prominent literary and theatrical figures. Her studies of children, particularly her own two daughters, are also noteworthy, and she is remembered for her photographs of female nudes in allegorical or natural settings. Her studio remained open for forty years. In 1928 a collection of her portraits, Photographing the Famous, was published. Her work is in the permanent collections of several major museums.
