This week would have marked Ernest Batchelder's 145th birthday. Our latest blog by Laura Verlaque celebrates the tilemaker's strong, yet little known, talent in drawing.
Batchelder is also featured as one of Pasadena's early entrepreneurs in the current exhibition, Starting Anew: Transforming Pasadena, 1890-1930.
Batchelder sketches from his travels underscore his deep interest in and knowledge of European design and architecture. They showcase his strong talent in drawing.
