Alice Barber Stephens (1858-1932)
Alice Barber Stephens was the first famous female illustrator to work in this country. She received her early training at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women and later at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where she studied with Thomas Eakins. Stephens also got valuable on-the-job training as a wood engraver for Harper’s Weekly, Harper’s Young People, and Scribner’s Magazine. As an illustrator she was capable of working in a variety of media, from charcoal to oils, and her work graced many of the popular books and magazines of the time. Like many women artists she focused on domestic scenes, which she managed to accurately convey without excess sentimentality.
