Mary DeNeale Morgan
Mary DeNeale Morgan (May 24, 1868 – October 10, 1948) was an American painter, especially in watercolor, and printmaker.
A native of San Francisco, Morgan was the second of seven children; her mother's parents had emigrated to California from Scotland in the 1850s. She grew up in Oakland, where her father was city engineer for some years.
She opened a studio in Oakland in 1896, and for a short while also taught art at Oakland High School. In 1909 she moved to Carmel-by-the-Sea, purchasing a house and studio from watercolorist Sydney Yard. In 1914 she took classes with William Merritt Chase when he came to the town for the summer, at her instigation. From 1917 to 1925 she directed the Carmel School of Art. She was among the founders of the Carmel Art Association. In 1928 she was recognized by Scribner's for her work. During World War II she traveled weekly to Fort Ord to sketch some of the men stationed there.
Among the museums and institutions holding examples of her work are the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Art Association; the University of California, Berkeley; the University of Southern California; and the University of Texas at Austin.
