This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in San Francisco, CA on Feb. 18, 1890 into an early pioneer family. Her ancestor Captain Frederick Macondray came to California in 1821 and later settled in San Francisco shortly after the Gold Rush. Macondray Lane, Otis and McAllister streets in San Francisco are named in honor of members of her family. Ethel began a four year course at the CSFA under John Stanton, Pedro Lemos, and Frank Van Sloun. After graduating from that school in 1915, she studied at the ASL in NYC under Frank DuMond and Kenneth H. Miller. Returning to California, she spent several months in Monterey where she was a pupil of painter E. Charlton Fortune who remained her lifelong friend and was maid of honor at her wedding in 1918 to D. Hanson Grubb. As a student of the CSFA, she did several etchings but did not pursue that art form after graduation. Her many oils include flower studies, cityscapes, figure studies, and playground scenes with children. Many of her oils are signed: E McA G. Her style is based on Impressionism and shows the influence of her teacher E. C. Fortune. A lifelong resident of San Francisco, Mrs. Grubb died at home on March 7, 1985. Exh: PPIE, 1916; Calif. Industries Expo (San Diego), 1926; EastWest Gallery (SF), 1930 (solo); Oakland Museum; CPLH; SFAA annuals; SFMA.
