ALCOTT, May artist (Mrs. ERNEST NIERIKER), born in Concord, Massachusetts, in 1840; died in December 1879. She was a daughter of A. born Alcott. At the school of design in Boston, and in the studies of Krug, Rimmer, Hunt, Vautier, Johnston, and Muller she received the best attainable instruction, and subsequently divided her time between Boston, London, and Paris. After her marriage she lived mainly in Paris. Her strength was as a copyist and as a painter of still life, either in oils or watercolors. Her success as a copyist of Turner was such as to command the praise of Mr. Ruskin, and secure the adoption of some of her work for the pupils to copy at the South Kensington schools in London. In these branches of work she had few equals. She published "Concord Sketches," with a preface by her sister (Boston, 1869).
