Eve Drewelowe was a native of Iowa and in 1924 became the first recipient of a graduate degree in fine arts from the University of Iowa. During an around the world trip, she filled seven sketchbooks with her work. But, after a "health crisis," she recommitted herself to painting, and produced work in "impressionist, social realist, and abstract expressionist styles." One look at the mini-slideshow on the homepage of the University of Iowa Libraries, where the digital collection is located, and the variety of Drewelowe's artistic style is evident. Visitors should click on the images to read the details of these works. Her "Self-Portrait" from 1984 is a good example of her skills. The types of items in the Drewelowe digital collection can be found in the drop down box on the homepage under "Browse." Visitors will find "Art Collection," "Personal Papers," "Self Portraits," "Travel Sketchbooks," "Photographs," and her "First solo New York exhibit, 1941."
