Margarett Sargent was a sculptor, painter and member of the National Association of Women Artists. Founded in 1892, NAWA is the oldest professional women’s arts organization in the United States, and counts among its earliest members a number of prominent Cape Ann artists whose work is represented in the Cape Ann Museum collections, including Anna Hyatt Huntington, Katharine Lane Weems and Theresa Bernstein.
Sargent was an early Modernist who rebelled against the societal expectations of her privileged Boston Brahmin family and embarked upon a career as an artist in the heady 1920s and 30s.
Tamsen Endicott is a docent at the Cape Ann Museum and leader of the Cape Ann Museum Book Club. A Rockport native, Tamsen enjoys history, genealogy and is pursuing graduate work in public history.
