Sculptor and inventor, Harriet Goodhue Hosmer was a native of Watertown, Massachusetts, the daughter of Dr. Hiram and Sarah (Grant) Hosmer. She studied anatomy, and spent much of her life in Rome, where she was at first the pupil of the English sculptor, John Gibson. Her works were exhibited and purchased in England and the United States.
