BURR SINGER (1912-1992) California watercolor painting of sailboats dated 1953 by well listed social realist artist

Watercolor on heavy watercolor paper, 8 1/2" by 11", unframed and with old mat still attached, signed at lower right "B. Singer" and dated there '53. This is a work of noted California painter BURR SINGER (1912-1992). Singer is an important California woman artist, fine oil works bringing to the upper four figures at recent auctions. Born in St. Louis, she exhibited around the country at the 1939 World's Fair in San Francisco, after studying at the Art Students League in New York and the Art Institute in Chicago. She painted for a time in the Taos, New Mexico art colony, a student of Walter Ufer. This example shows her skill in watercolor, what with the wet-on-wet technique and the geometric shapes worked into the composition, the triangular sails reinforcing the triangular distant coastal mountains. Condition is excellent with just some cockling that is not visible---it's more easily felt with the fingers; and the mat must be removed carefully, obviously, before this is reframed. See the net for much more on Singer and her works. Shipping wizard figures are guesstimates. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER PAINTINGS NOW IN MY SHOP.
