This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in NYC on Nov. 7, 1847. "Lotta" came to California at age six with her mother. They settled in Grass Valley where her mother operated a boarding house for gold miners. At age eight Lotta was a protégée of Lola Montez in Grass Valley and became the singing and dancing darling of the Gold Rush mining camps. Later in life she became one of the nation's most famous and successful actresses. As the head of a dramatic company, she toured the nation in her own private railroad car. In 1875 she presented the city of San Francisco the fountain on Market Street which bears her name as a memorial to the city where she got her start. Upon retiring from the stage inn 1891 as a wealthy woman, she took up painting. She then studied painting in Paris at Académie Colarossi and in Carmel with Mary DeNeale Morgan. On her last visit to California in 1915 she was honored with a special day at the PPIE. She died in Boston, MA on Sept. 26, 1924. In: CHS (monochromes).
