Maryon, Edith Louisa [English, 1872-1924]

[ 20th Century Artists | Art Nouveau Artists | Anthroposophical Artists ]

Edith Louisa Maryon (London, 9 February 1872 – 2 May 1924 in Dornach, Switzerland) was an English sculptor. Along with Ita Wegman, she belonged to the innermost circle of founders of anthroposophy and those around Rudolf Steiner.

Edith Maryon was the second of six children. Her parents were John Maryon Simeon and his wife Louisa Church who lived in London where she grew up. Young Edith attended a girls school and later went to a boarding school in the Swiss city of Geneva. During the 1890s, she studied sculpture in London at the Central School of Design, and from 1896 at the Royal College of Arts.

Maryon met Rudolf Steiner in 1912/13, and after the summer of 1914, she moved to Dornach. Edith worked with Steiner on the construction of the first Goetheanum, where she along with Steiner worked on the sculpture, The Representative of Humanity. While in Dornach, she served as the head of the Section of Fine Arts at the Goetheanum. She passed on in 1924 due to the complications of tuberculosis.
