Eda Kavin Artist & Trailblazer


William Torphy’s Biography of a 20th Century San Francisco Artist dedicated to 
freedom and beauty.

At 75, she picked up a brush and began painting Chinese watercolors.

Eda touched many who have touched us; Yehudi Menuhin, Henry Miller, John Cage, Stephen Spender, and a generation of painters.
Yet she never sought fame, and never taught – She did what she loved simply because she loved it.
From digging ditches in Russia to book binding, from McCarthyism to draftsman, from usher to artist.
