    Anna Richards Brewster studied and traveled with her father, painter William Trost Richards, before studying at the Cowles Art School in Boston and the National Academy. From 1890 to 1895 she painted with her father in the British Isles and studied in Paris. She established a studio in London in 1895, becoming acquainted with members of the Pre-Raphaelite circle, exhibiting at the Royal Academy, and taking painting trips to France, Norway, and Holland. In 1905 she married Professor William Brewster, and for more than three decades they spent summers in Matunuck, Rhode Island, winters in New York, and sabbaticals abroad, providing her with the opportunities to produce the many paintings and sketches of foreign lands for which she is best known.
