About

GRACE HILL TURNBULL (1880-1976) Waterfall (Woodstock, New York), c. 1925 Oil on canvas 14 x 20 inches Unsigned PROVENANCE The Maryland Historical Society The work of painter-sculptor Grace Hill Turnbull, born in 1880 in Baltimore, Maryland, is represented in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City (green marble python); Baltimore Junior College (black marble hippopotamus head); Eastern High School (shepherd surrounded by sheep, memorial to poet Lizette Woodward Reese) and others. As times and the climate of the art world changed, her work in painting varied from traditional portraits to modernist figures in landscapes. In 1914 in Paris, France, she was awarded the Whitelaw Reid First Prize. She exhibited in the annual exhibitions of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors in New York City, including their 45th and 50th shows in 1936 and 1942. Mediums included marble, wood, pastel and oil. Her first experience as a sculptress was at age 13, when she and her brother Bayard built a miniature white marble church at the family's summer home. A descendent of William Turnbull, who came to Philadelphia from Scotland in 1770 and rose to prominence as a merchant and pioneer in the development of Pittsburgh, Grace grew up in a distinguished and well-ordered household in Baltimore. She was considered very avant-garde when she started painting around the beginning of the 20th Century, first portraits, and then landscapes and flowers. In 1928, she moved into her house in Guilford, designed by her brother Bayard, and concentrated on creating sculptural work. Ms. Turnbull worked as a sculptor into advanced age, and she also authored several books. She died in Baltimore in 1976.
