Eveline Adelheid von Maydell (1890-1962) was a German silhouette artist. Born in Iran, she studied drawing in Pärnu, Estonia, in Riga, Latvia and in St. Petersburg, Russia. She moved to the United States in 1922. Several of her artworks were exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in the 1920s, and again in the 1940s.
