About: Like many of his fellow-members of the Society of American Wood Engravers, Albert Mumford Lindsay engraved other artists' paintings and illustrations for reproduction and then exhibited the prints as examples of the printmaking art. The catalogue of such an exhibition in Boston in 1890 lists Lindsay's engravings of works by seven artists, including the Western specialist Frederic Remington. Rosina Emmet Sherwood (1854–1948) was primarily a painter. Born in New York City, she studied with William Merritt Chase. By 1881 she was working as anillustrator for major magazines. She occupied a studio in the Tenth Street Studio Building, which was the first structure designed to serve the needs of artists and became a gathering place for the New York art scene. She also designed textiles and wallpaper.for Candace Wheeler's Associated Artists firm and later painted murals and portraits. She was the mother of playwright and screenwriter Robert E. Sherwood (1896-1955).
