She did not get on with her husband and because the 'times' frowned upon divorce, the lived seperately. One of the pictures she is famous for is below:

This picture is circa 1915 and is entitiled, Yoke and Muzzle - Marriage *(I am curious as to what her husband thought?*)

Including the pictures she took of Natives she also photographed, Rose O'Neill, who was an illistrator, best known for her "kewpies." These are very valuable if you can find the dolls or pictures in mint condition.


Some of Rose O'Niells work.
