Whitman, Georgia M., 1910-1985



Georgia M. Whitman was a professional sculptor, noted for her sculptures of animals in movement. She studied at the Slade School of Art at the University of London, and in New York City with Naum M. Los (E 60th Street NYC), with whom she studied human and animal anatomy. Whitman volunteered in 1938-1939 at the American Museum of Natural History and was the artist for all of the bas-reliefs used on the "Family Tree of the Dinosaurs" exhibit, 1938-1939, displayed in the historic AMNH Jurassic Hall. Many of the bas-reliefs were reused for the dinosaur phylogeny trees presently on display at the AMNH (4th floor).
