Carol Anthony (born 1943)[1] is an American artist. Her paintings and monotypes are represented in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the Carnegie Institute, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among others.

Early Life[edit]

Anthony was born in New York City in 1943. Her father, the Creative Vice President of Young & Rubicam advertising agency and a cartoonist contributor to The New Yorker, and mother, a singer, raised her and her identical twin sister in Connecticut. After losing their mother to Myasthenia gravis, Anthony and her sister attended boarding school in Massachusetts. Later, she attended Stephens College, Missouri and the Rhode Island School of Design. Anthony graduated in 1966, earning a bachelor's degree in art.[2]

Career[edit]

In the 1970s, Anthony's papier-mache sculptures of cartoon-like figures, a tribute to her father, earned some recognition. The Museum of Contemporary Crafts featured an exhibition of her three-dimensional figures. By 1978, she stopped sculpting to focus on painting, particularly still lifes and simple scenes.[2] Anthony has lived and worked in Connecticut, Washington State, and most recently, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
