Evelyn Nesbit And Stanford White

In June 1900, Mrs. Nesbit, leaving her children in the care of others, relocated to New York City, again hoping to find work as a seamstress or clothing designer. However, she had even less success in finding employment in the competitive environment of New York City than she had had in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Philadelphia artists, with the idea of boosting Evelyn's modeling career, had provided letters of introduction to New York artists, but Mrs. Nesbit made no use of these prospective contacts. In November 1900, still without employment, she finally sent for her children. The three were reunited and shared a single back room in a building on 22nd Street in Manhattan. Financial necessity and Evelyn's insistence on resuming modeling finally prompted Mrs. Nesbit to make use of the Philadelphia recommendations by contacting James Carroll Beckwith, whose primary patron was John Jacob Astor. This association opened up a world of further modeling opportunities for Evelyn, as Beckwith was a respected painter and instructor of life classes at the Art Students League. An elderly, courtly man, Beckwith felt protective of the teenaged girl, whose self-directed determination to pursue a modeling career aroused his paternal concern. He provided her with letters of introduction to legitimate artists such as Frederick S. Church, Herbert Morgan, and Carle J. Blenner.

Florence Evelyn Nesbit (December 25, 1884 or 1885 – January 17, 1967), known professionally as Evelyn Nesbit , was an American artists' model , chorus girl , and actress .
