This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Alice Avina, great granddaughter of Francis and Bertha Hewitt Woolrych.

Bertha Hewitt was a wonderful artist; she was noted in 1904 artists "Who's Who in America," and "Women Artists of 1900's," and several other publications. Her speciality was portraits and still life in oil and pastel--her pastels were awesome! so life like, you could almost see them breathe!

They were my great grandparents, I grew up with their art on every wall, because my grandparents, Mr.& Mrs. F. H. Woolrych Jr. raised me.

The following was provided by K.E. Clark, who obtained copies of forms filled out by Bertha Woolrych for the Art Department archives of the St. Louis Public Library:

Bertha Hewitt, a painter who did numerous miniatures on ivory, was born in Corneant, Ohio and attended Ursuline Convent in Alton, Illinois. She studied art at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts where she won gold and silver metals, and in 1886, went to Paris, France, with her widowed mother. She studied at the Ecole Colorossi with Aime Morot, and Raphael Collin, and exhibited in 1888 at the Paris Salon.

In 1887 in Paris, she married artist Francis Humphrey William Woolrych. They had two children and had active art careers in St. Louis. She was a member of the St. Louis Art Guild and the St. Louis Art Students Association.
