Her work is imbued with an Op sensibility of pattern juxtaposed with a command of form and volume reminiscent of Provincetown artist Marcia Marcus, as easily at home with David Hockney as Doris Lee. Edited and expanded upon from an LA Times archived posting. Sale of estate items near Palm Beach, Florida, late 2014. In generally intact as discovered estate sale condition with an attractive period now sometimes termed retro 1970's 1980's New Wave Era post Mid Century Modern sunny Southern California palette. The work is on paper however it is not currently under glass.
While the rear backing paper is intact there some space in the molding edges and we believe this had glass over it originally which was cracked and or removed from the front. Since being unglazed (without glass) the surface has acquired lots of surface rubs and scuffs from storage up against a variety of objects (see detail images). Mounting waves to top background and a little lifting.
There's still plenty to enjoy here as it is but it would need to be submitted to a works on paper conservator for lots of small attentions prior to a museum or gallery exhibition. Matting acidified, frame and matting also with various surface wear. Frame separating and backing tattered.
