EVELYN BICKNELL (1857-1936, NY, Bermuda) Seascape

Lot 0194 Details

"Colored Sails In Harbor". Impressionist. Oil on board 17 x 12 in., 21 1/2 x 18 1/2 in. (framed). The following is from askart.com: The following information is from Bob Mueller, Chairman, Curators Committee, Salmagundi Club. He writes: "I'm sending this email with the hope of finally setting the record straight regarding this artist." Evelyn Montague Bicknell was a indeed member of the Salmagundi Club from 1892 until his death on March 5, 1936. In fact, Bicknell had a room at the Club and died there at the age of 78. The greatest misconception about this artist in all the biographies I have found online, and even "Who Was Who In American Art", was that they all claimed he was a she! One even goes so far as stating that Evelyn M. Bicknell was the wife of another Salmagundian, Frank A. Bicknell (they were not related). All acknowledge Bicknell as a member of the club but fail to note the fact that it was an all-male organization until 1973. The artist was also a member of the American Water Color Society and the New York Water Color Club. Bicknell was born on July 14, 1857 in Riverdale, NY and was known primarily as a painter of coastal landscapes, marines and scenes of Bermuda, a favorite vacation spot for the artist.
