Audrey Munson

Audrey Munson was a remarkable yet often overlooked woman in the early 20th century. She is categorized as America’s first supermodel and was popularly known as “Miss Manhattan,” “The Panama-Pacific Girl,” and “American Venus.” Audrey had aspirations in the performing arts, which led to small roles in eleven silent films between 1915 and 1921. As an artist’s model, Audrey posed for renowned sculptors such as Isidore Konti, who immortalized her graceful figure in his works. Audrey Munson broke the mold of typical women of her time by venturing into exciting new roles in theater, film, and artwork. Audrey still captures our interest today with her amazing contributions to America’s art and culture.
