Edna Manley (born 1900 Yorkshire, England; died 1987 Kingston, Jamaica) is considered one of the most important artists of Jamaica. She was the mother of Michael Manley, Jamaica's fifth Prime Minister, who served two terms (1972-1980 and 1989-1992). David Boxer studied History of Art at Cornell and Johns Hopkins Universities. In 1975 he joined the staff of the fledgling National Gallery of Jamaica as Director and Curator. In that capacity, and more recently as Director Emeritus/Chief Curator, he has curated or been associated with more than 60 important exhibitions of Jamaican art. In addition to this important monograph on the sculptures of Edna Manley, he is the author of several catalogues and articles on Jamaican art, and has also directed several television documentaries on the subject. In 1991 he was made Commander of the Order of Distinction and in 1995 he was awarded the prestigious Gold Musgrave Medal of the Institute of Jamaica for his role in the development of Jamaican art and the National Gallery. Boxer is also one of the Caribbean's most distinguished and influential artists, having won a gold medal in the inaugural Biennial of Caribbean and Central American paintings in Santo Domingo and mounted important installations in Kingston, U.K.,Washington, D.C., and at the São Paulo and Havana Biennials.
