Character description

Abigail May Alcott (1840-1879), known as May, was an American artist and the youngest sister of Louisa May Alcott. She was the model for the character of Amy in Little Women. She illustrated the first edition of Little Women, which earned enough money to pay for her to travel to Europe to study and paint. In 1869, she published Concord Sketches, with a preface by her sister. While living and studying art in London in 1878, she married Ernest Nieriker, a Swiss merchant 16 years her junior. The following year, she gave birth to a daughter named Louisa May and died seven weeks later at age 39.
