Luce Artist Biography

Alice Beckington was a founder and president of the American Society of Miniature Painters, and an award-winning miniaturist. Her prizes included a medal at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition, in Buffalo, New York, and another at the St. Louis Exposition in 1904. She was also part of a cosmopolitan group of women artists trained in New York and Paris, who created a summer colony in the small fishing town of Scituate, Massachusetts. This group followed the example of the first important summer art colony in the United States, established in Shinnecock, Long Island, by William Merritt Chase.
