This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information courtesy of Peter Kostoulakos, AOA, NEAA — Fine Art Consultant, www.pkart.com:

Evelyn Montague Bicknell — an oil and watercolor painter known for his landscapes, marines, coastal scenes, and scenes of Bermuda from 1902/3 — was born in New York City on August 31, 1857 and died in 1936.

According to The Boston Art Club Exhibition Record, 1873-1909, his address from 1888 to 1892 was 2 West 14th Street New York City; 1894, 96 Fifth Avenue, NYC; 1896 and 1897, 35 West 14th Street, NYC; 1898 to 1902, 52 East 23rd Street, NYC; and in 1905, 55 West 33rd Street, NYC. Fielding has his address in 1926 at 18 West 27th Street, NYC. In the February 8, 1902 edition of The New York Times, “What Is Doing In Society,” Bicknell was reported as spending the winter in Bermuda.

Bicknell was a member of the New York Watercolor Club; the Salmagundi Club in NYC; and the American Watercolor Society in NYC.  He exhibited with the National Academy of Design from 1885 to 1899; the Boston Art Club from 1888 to 1905; the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1888 to 1900; the National Arts Club in NYC; Salons of America; and the Art Institute of Chicago.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
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.  

Most sincerely,

Bob Mueller
