This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Alice Conklin Bevin (b.1893-d.1969)

Probably no American woman artist has traveled as widely as New England born Alice Bevin.  She has painted an extraordinary range of people against ther natural background from the Arctic to the Sahara desert.

After a year at the Hartford Art School, Ms Bevin entered the Art Students League in New York City where she studied under George Bridgman and Vincent du Mond.  Summers were spent at the studio of Charles Hawthorne in Provincetown, Massachusetts.   Eventually she opened her own studio in Boston to work with Philip Hale.  For the next fifteen years, Ms Bevin resided in Paris but with the outbreak of World War ll she returned to the United States and had studios in East Hampton Connecticut and New York City.  Her New England ancestors had settled in Essex and East Hampton and lived in that area since 1636.

Although her portraits of prominent persons in Europe and the United States brought her a good deal of acclaim, she specializes in character studies, varying from Brittany and Cape Cod fishermen, African Sheiks and dancing girls, Argentine gauchos, oriental ladies and countless others.  Not the least appealing works by this qualified artist are her charming New England scenes most of which center around her homes in East Hampton and Essex, Connecticut to which she always returned with great pleasure.  For her artistic contributions she was proposed for the French Legion of Honor and the French government purchased her self portrait for the National Art Gallery.  Unfortunately the war broke out before she could accept the honor.  She has written some fascinating profiles of some of the people she painted.  She was always able to establish a very intimate rapport with her models, which she enjoyed immensely.
