Mary Bradish Titcomb (1858-1927)
Vose Galleries’ 1998 exhibition Mary Bradish Titcomb and Her Contemporaries: The Artists of Fenway Studios, 1905-1939 reintroduced a remarkable talent and an integral part of Boston’s cultural legacy. The exhibition accompanied a fundraising effort led by Vose Galleries to cease the development of a shopping complex that, if constructed, would block the northern light from reaching the artist studios. Fortunately, this effort was successful, and we thank the family of the artist and more than twenty collectors for amassing the estate of the artist to assist with the effort. We at Vose Galleries are proud to remain vocal advocates for all artists of Fenway Studios, and especially the women artists of the Boston School.
