Paintings by Marion Kavanagh Wachtel were signed using various signatures. Some of the paintings created by Marion Kavanagh Wachtel have the signature Marion Kavanaugh (the artist's maiden name) during the time she was painting prior to getting married. Sometime after marrying early California painter Elmer Wachtel, Marion Kavanaugh dropped the "u" from Kavanaugh. After she was married she used the signature Marion K. Wachtel, the signature Marion Kavanaugh Wachtel prior to the "u" being dropped, and ultimately she used the signature Marion Kavanagh Wachtel.
