Marion Boyd Allen
Marion Boyd Allen (1862–1941) was an American painter, known for her portraits and landscapes. She entered the Boston Museum School in 1902 at the age of 40, where she studied under Frank Weston Benson and Edmund C. Tarbell. Her painting "Enameling" was included in the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, and her portrait of Anna Vaughn Hyatt won the Newport Art Association's popular prize in 1919. In the 1920s, she traveled to the American West and began painting landscapes, including national landmarks such as the Grand Canyon and Mt. Rainier, at a time when landscape painting was almost exclusively a male-dominated field.
