GEORGE GIBSON (1904-2001) major California watercolor art painting of old house dated 1958

By a National Academician and painting companion of Emil Kosa, here is a large watercolor (21" by 26 1/2"-----28" by 34" as framed) painting of an old style Southern California large wood dwelling structure, signed at lower right by noted artist GEORGE GIBSON (1904-2001). The old house with straggling palm outside certainly resembles some of the picturesque old structures near downtown Los Angeles that were so often the subject of Kosa's works. This is a very fresh looking work (not examined out of frame) with rich color and no foxing or water damage. It's a relatively early example of his work, which in very recent years has exceeded the five figure mark at auction. Gibson was born in Scotland, and was in L.A. by the 1930s, where he was director of the scene department at MGM studios, having worked on major pictures like the Wizard of Oz, Brigadoon, and Oklahoma. He was instructed by F. Tolles Chamberlin and went on to become more active in watercolor in his later years. Gibson was a member of the American Watercolor Society and the California Watercolor Society. Item is behind glass and framing appears to be original. .
