504    Includes bibliographical references and index. 
520    Harriet Hosmer (1830-1908) was celebrated as one of the 
       country's most respected artists, credited with opening 
       the field of sculpture to women and cited as a model of 
       female ability and American refinement. In this 
       biographical study, Kate Culkin explores Hosmer's life and
       work and places her in the context of a notable group of 
       expatriate writers and artists who gathered in Rome in the
       mid-nineteenth century. 
520    In 1852 Hosmer moved from Boston to Rome, where she shared
       a house with actress Charlotte Cushman and soon formed 
       close friendships with such prominent expatriates as 
       Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning and fellow sculptors
       John Gibson, Emma Stebbins, and William Wetmore Story. 
       References to Hosmer or characters inspired by her appear 
       in the work of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, and
       Kate Field among others. 
520    Culkin argues that Hosmer's success was made possible by 
       her extensive network of supporters, including her famous 
       friends, boosters of American gentility, and women's 
       rights advocates. This unlikely coalition, along with her 
       talent, ambition, and careful maintenance of her public 
       profile, ultimately brought her great acclaim. Culkin also
       addresses Hosmer's critique of women's position in 
       nineteenth-century culture through her sculpture, women's 
       rights advocates' use of high art to promote their cause, 
       the role Hosmer's relationships with women played in her 
       life and success, and the complex position a female artist
       occupied within a country increasingly interested in 
       proving its gentility. --Book Jacket.
