This work dates from either the late 1940's or the early 1950's. It is Oil on board and shows some of the old masters layering technique she employed at the time. This painting is early in her career and shows some immaturity in her art, but also her ability to work with color. The reason these oil on board works seem old and chipped is because all these older works sat in a wet fruit celler in piles at our Downer avenue residence for over 30 years gathering dust. When this web project was started many works appeared that I never seem to have seen before.
