Harriet Hosmer was a remarkable sculptor and woman who defied the 19th-century notions of femininity. She led what was considered at the time to be a bohemian lifestyle. Born in Watertown, Massachusetts, Hosmer knew at the age of 19 that she wanted to be a sculptor. Early on she flouted convention and went to St. Louis to study anatomy at the all-male Washington University Medical School. In 1852 she departed for Rome to study with John Gibson. In Rome she developed close friendships within the Anglo-American community including the Brownings and Nathaniel Hawthorn.
