Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Ella (Nellie) C. Hopps Howard was born in San Francisco, CA on Dec. 6, 1855. "Nellie" Hopps was artistically inclined at an early age and one of the first pupils to enroll when the local School of Design opened in 1874. After receiving a well-rounded art training under Virgil Williams, she established a studio at 728 Montgomery Street and was active with the San Francisco Art Ass'n. For a few years she was romantically involved and a sketching partner of Julian Rix. Following her marriage to B. Chandler Howard in 1884, she moved to the Orient, where her husband was manager of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, and spent the next 57 years there. Upon returning to San Francisco in 1942, she held a successful exhibition of her life's work at the Palace Hotel. The last eight years of her life were spent in Laguna Beach as a resident of Hotel Laguna. She died there on Jan. 4, 1956 at age 100.
