On the back is the original exhibition label that reads 23rd Annual California Water Color Society Show. It is titled Outdoor Still Life. This is the most beautiful California Impressionist still life water color we have had the pleasure to purchase and offer for sale. Image size 27 inches wide by 22 inches high. Framed size 33 inches wide by 28 inches high. It is in its original frame as exhibited in the 1944 exhibition. This artist has auction records as high as $3900.00 for water colors no where near as nice or as beautiful as this one. I believe this to be the artist's finest work. It is a water color on Archer's paper. The provenance is the collection of Peter Nielson by decent in Nielson's family to a private collection in California. The painting is in excellent condition. The frame has some minor scuffs that can easily be touched up. This painting is guaranteed to please the most particular water color enthusiast, collector or connoisseur.
