M. Evelyn McCormick
(Placerville, CA, 1863 - 1948, Monterey, CA)
American, 1869-1948 (N. Cal.; local)
A native Californian, Evelyn McCormick studied art in San Francisco at the School of Design. There, a romance with Guy Rose flared which continued when both travelled to Giverny, France the following year. Giverny at that time, with its inexpensive but welcoming Hotel Baudy, was a mecca for American artists wanting to absorb French influences and prestige. Returning to California, McCormick settled into the growing bohemian community of the Monterey peninsula where she and writer Charles Warren Stoddard became involved, a short-term romance which resulted in an illegitimate daughter.
McCormick set up her studio in the second floor of the Customs House. One of the original exhibitors in the art gallery established at the Hotel Del Monte in 1907, she gained a reputation over the years for her notable impressionist paintings of Monterey-s historic buildings and adobes.
