Evelyn Almond Withrow (1858-1928)

Evelyn Almond Withrow showed both in her mystic, symbolic canvases and in her portraits that she was a “painter of the spirit, as seen through the mask of the flesh.”With the death of Evelyn Almond Withrow in San Diego, California, on June 17, 1928, we find the end of a hardy, spirited pioneer woman artist whose works covered a full half century of painting. Her moods and manners, portraits and fancies, are an accurate gauge of the thought and taste in San Francisco art culture as colored by European influences of the nineties.
