Martha Wood Belcher’s career as an artist spanned two centuries and two continents. She fulfilled the traditional roles of mother, sister, daughter and wife, as well as what is usually considered to be the more contemporary role of an equal financial partner with her husband in supporting - through the sale of her artwork - her mother, sisters and children.
