Mabel Alverez (1891-1985)

 Born on the Hawaiian island of Oahu in 1891, Mabel Alvarez was the youngest of 5 children. Her father, Dr. Luis Fernandez Alvarez was a Spanish born physician to Hawaiian royalty, and a business advisor to the Spanish Kingís son. With a large fortune made from buying and selling land in Hawaii, Dr. Alvarez moved his family to California, where his children were afforded excellent education.

Mabel Alvarez, who had always shown artistic talent, attended William Cahillís prestigious art academy in Los Angeles. Alvarez enjoyed many immediate successes, including a Gold Medal for a Mural she produced for the Pan-California Exhibition in San Diego.

In the 20ís and 30ís her works were heavily influenced by the Synchromy Movementís Stanton MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell, who would be her teacher for over 20 years. Alvarezís work was a constant evolution. Her late works are introspective, focusing on religious and symbolic themes. She spent the last several years of her life in a nursing home in Los Angeles, where she died in March, 1985.
