While I compiled much of the preliminary information on the artist the folks at Wiscasset Gallery did a very nice concise bio, included here: Excerpt from AsK Art & Wiscasset Gallery,
Although Lucy Hariot Booth was friends with both Theodore Robinson (1852-1896), J. Alden Weir (1852-1919) and John Henry Twachtman (1853-1902), all of whom were pioneers in bringing impressionism to this country, little is known about this colorful lady from Townshend, Vermont.
Lucy Booth was born November 26, 1869, to Franklin and Lucy Newcomb Booth, native New Englanders temporarily living in Iowa. By 1880 the Booth family had returned to the east coast and was residing in Newtown, New York on Long Island.
While undertaking academic studies at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, Booth began courses at the Art Students League in New York in the fall of 1890. It was here she began her connection to some of the leading figures in American Impressionism. Initially she studied under Carroll Beckwith (1852-1917) and Willard Metcalf (1858-1917). By January, 1893, Booth worked under Julien Alden Weir at the Art Students League, where she developed a friendship with Weir and his wife Ella, which lasted many years. Letters between Ella Weir and Lucy Booth attest to the close bond between the women, and Booth often visited the Weirs in Branchville, Connecticut. Through this relationship she befriended the other members of the Cos Cob Art colony, John Henry Twachtman, and Theodore Robinson.
