Image 7/16: Settling in Pasadena, California
They married, collected Leonora from boarding school in Switzerland, and settled in Pasadena, California in 1896. Eva continued to study with and to promote artists of the region while successfully investing in stocks and real estate in the booming Los Angeles area. Eva’s house reflected her fantasies as well as her needs. Her first house was a Moorish mansion complete with stuffed peacock. The subsequent Beaux-Arts Orange Grove Blvd. residence was more modest, without a ballroom, reflecting a different stage in her life.
