Virginia de Seigeur Litchfield Biography

Virginia de Seigeur Litchfield




Little is found on Virginia M. de Seigeur Litchfield, though a brief article in the Santa Barbara Sentinel, from September 6, 2014, reads: "...Litchfield was born in San Diego and became known for her watercolor landscapes. In 1927-'28, she leased a studio at the Meridian and taught at the Santa Barbara School of the Arts. She later taught design at Scripps College in Claremont." It appears she died unexpectedly in 1933; at the time, she may have gone by the surname Clark.

She exhibited with the Northwest Printmakers and the Printmakers of Los Angeles in 1931. A memorial was held for her at Scripps in 1933.
