The Alice Austen House promotes public awareness and scholarly study regarding the life and work of Alice Austen (1866 - 1952). Austen was one of America's earliest and most prolific female photographers.
The Alice Austen House honors the legacy of Alice Austen (1866-1952), a pioneer photographer and an inspiring ‘modern woman’ of the Victorian age, by offering ongoing exhibitions of her life and work and of contemporary photography; by delivering educational programs for New York City schoolchildren; and by hosting a range of public arts programs. The museum is located within Clear Comfort, the waterfront Victorian Gothic cottage where Austen spent all but the last few years of her life with her lifelong companion, Gertrude Tate. From this inspiring setting on Staten Island’s Northern shore, the Alice Austen House offers a unique opportunity to broaden perspectives of the world around us, gain inspiration from Austen’s life story, and engage in enriching cultural events.
