Miles Evergood – No End of Passion, by Gael Hammer, Phillip Mathews, 2014. illustrated page 46 (full page).
The Page was probably made in the late 1920s in America. The subject is Polly Romero, about 20 years younger than the recently-widowed Evergood, who was to become his defacto wife until the artist’s death in January, 1939. They would go to parties in costume, and Polly wears the costume of a courtier in an English or European court. Evergood made several pulls in sepia and in black on tissue, on white cartridge paper, and on brown card. Most on card are signed, though the tissues are not.
