Edith Park Truesdell

John Seed tells the little known story of Edith Park Truesdell (1888-1986) "a painter, a teacher, a writer and a poet." Truesdell, a contemporary of Georgia O'Keeffe, studied with Frank Weston Benson and Edmund C. Tarbell at the Boston Museum School in 1906. Her lifelong devotion to painting was an inspiration to her nephew San Francisco Bay Area Figurative painter David Park (1911-1960).

Seed quotes Helen Park Bigelow: "As with David... painting was always Edith's fierce, abiding engagement."
