Watercolor on paper / Evelyn was an American model during the first decades of The Twentieth Century. She supported her mother and siblings by posing for famous painters. Her face appears in many classic American paintings and she was one of the original Gibson Girls. She became a full on celebrity after she began posing for early fashion and "art" photographers. Her personal life was volatile and she was at the center of a massive scandal when her then husband shot and killed one of her ex-lovers on the rooftop of Madison Square Garden in 1906. At the time, the killing was dubbed "the murder of the century."
