Roger Fry

Edith Woodman Burroughs American

Not on view

Fry (1866-1934) was an influential English art historian and critic, who in 1906 became the Metropolitan Museum’s curator of European paintings. Fry’s curatorial assistant was Bryson Burroughs, whose wife Edith executed this medallion of Fry as a gesture of friendship. After studying with Kenyon Cox and Augustus Saint-Gaudens at New York’s Art Students League, and then training in Paris in the early 1890s, Edith Burroughs earned professional recognition for her figures, portrait busts, and medallions. “Roger Fry” showcases Burroughs’s expressive surface modeling.
