Alida Bevier's 19th century portrait truly captures the youth and joy of 3-year-old Louis S. Bevier (descendant of New Paltz Patentee Louis Bevier). 🎨 As a young artist, Alida gained popularity in the late 19th and early 20th century New York City art scenes - telling of a time in which women were gaining greater and greater independence, and had begun infiltrating the art world.
