American sculptor Janet Scudder lost four of her seven siblings in childhood. She later became a committed feminist. Scudder mostly produced statues of children, animals, elves and fairies. She was remembered for the highly popular fountains she created for many private patrons and public institutions in the early 20th century.

Scudder attended the Cincinnati (Ohio) Academy of Art, where she adopted the first name Janet. She studied drawing, anatomy, and modeling and settled upon wood carving as her principal interest. In 1891 she moved to Chicago and later to Paris. She returned to New York, but then went back to Paris in 1896, where she lived until the outbreak of World War I. After the war she again settled in Paris, living there until 1939.
