Edmund D. Hawthorn
Remarks: Active, 1863-1876 The painter E. D. Hawthorn remains something of a mystery. Graves mentions him as an exhibitor at the British Insitution for the years 1858 and 1862. The following year, Hawthorn painted the well-known "Interior of George Hayward's Porter House", 187 Sixth Avenue, N.Y.C. Hawthorn was living at 106 Bleeker Street, New York City, in 1864 when he exhibited "A Quiet Chapter" and "An Interior" at the National Academy of Design. From 1866 to 1876, he is sporadically listed in New York City directories as Edmund D. Hawthorn, and his profession is given as artist, decorative artist, and genre painter. He lived at 817 Broadway at least until 1869; other addresses include 751 Broadway (1872), 411 West 46th Street (1874), and 115 West 11th Street (1875).
