As a young woman, Edith Mitchill Prellwitz was
determined to study art and began taking classes
at the Art Students League.
In 1887, at the suggestion of her teacher George
de Forest Brush, she enrolled in the Life Class,
where nude models were used--a defining step for a
young female artist in those days and one that
determined her course as a serious professional.
She married the artist Henry Prellwitz, and with
the painters Irving Wiles and Edward August Bell,
established an artists’ colony in Peconic, New York,
on the North Fork of Long Island.

When the nights are done
And we see the sun
A new day dawns
With hope for some
When the fairies of spring
With warm breath breathe
The snow from the winters
Will leave their freeze
When the grub that lived
Leaves its cocoon
On the flight of wings
Will play till noon
When the days are done
And we lay us down
The stars will twinkle
In the moons playground
When the ends that come
Make it hard to see
There is something new
To set us free.

Far out in the ocean, where the water is as
blue as the prettiest cornflower, and as clear as
crystal, it is very, very deep; so deep,
that no cable could fathom it:
many church steeples, piled one upon another,
would not reach from the ground beneath to the
surface of the water above.
There dwell the Sea King and his subjects.
