In The Bosch, The Hague by Kate Maher

Kate Heath Maher was born in San Francisco on September 8, 1859 of English parents. She studied for four years at the local San Francisco School of Design under Virgil Williams and Raymond Yelland, and for two years under William Keith.

Maher found great inspiration in the French Impressionists after traveling extensively through Europe. This is directly reflected in her work, as she primarily painted oils and watercolors of European scenes and landscapes of Northern California. Maher never married and lived in San Francisco all of her life, until her death on August 15, 1946. She was a member of the Sequoia Club, San Francisco Art Association, and Sketch Club. Her work has been exhibited throughout California and Nevada.
