Marion Kavanaugh Wachtel (1870-1954)

Marion Kavanaugh Wachtel was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1870. Extremely well educated in the arts, Wachel began her studies at the Art Institute of Chicago followed by work with William Merritt Chase in New York and William Keith when she moved to San Francisco in 1903. It was Keith who introduced Marion Kavanaugh to her final teacher, Elmer Wachtel who would become her husband in 1904. Settling along the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena, Elmer and Marion Wachtel would become two of the most recognized names in early California painting, with Elmer working in oils, and Marion in watercolors which helped minimize competition in the sales of their paintings.
