Retracing Meta

Meta Fuller‘s home (31 Warren Road) and studio (135 Warren Road, on Learned Pond) still stand in Framingham, Massachusetts. A quiet, upper-middle class neighborhood when Meta and her family lived there 100 years ago, this winding street has become densely populated but is essentially a place she would recognize today. Her church, St. Andrew’s Episcopal, is a few blocks away. St. Andrew’s is home to Fuller’s small “Crucifixion” which hangs in a hallway between the main chapel and the parish offices. The bronze figure, about 16″ high, reveals Rodin’s influence on Fuller, who lived in Paris for several years around the turn of the last century and met the sculptor during her studies at the École des Beaux-Arts.
