Mary Roberts Ebert Biography




Mary Ebert was a water-colorist and a lifetime member of the American Water Color Society. She first came to Monhegan in 1908 with her husband, the water-colorist Charles H. Ebert, and their child. She and her husband met in an art class taught by John Twachtman in Cos Cob, Connecticut. The Eberts built a cottage on Monhegan, beside the Harbor, in 1915 and summered there for more than 40 years. They lived in Old Lyme during the winter, and many of their artist friends from the Old Lyme colony visited them on Monhegan during the summers in the 1910s and ’20s. Mary Ebert exhibited in the Monhegan Tercentenary Exhibition held in 1914 at Bert Poole's Studio.
