This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

Buffalo-born Anna Glenny Dunbar helped significantly to advance the careers of several early twentieth–century sculptors. During the mid-1920s, she facilitated the organization of monographic exhibitions of the work of Emile-Antoine Bourdelle, Ivan Meštrović, and Aristide Maillol as the Albright Art Gallery’s “honorary curator of sculpture.” She was also a prolific artist in her own right and was described as having “a fertile fancy and a creative instinct which shapes everything she attempts into a new and vital form of art.” The Jewess is perhaps the best known of Dunbar’s works.
