A skillfully done fine original drawing on artist's paper measuring 16 by 13 inches (sight). Signed " Thompson " in the lower right corner and again on the back of the matting "Laura Thompson". Came from an Illinois estate with several other great art pieces.

Thompson is a listed American Woman artist (Who Was Who in American Art, Artists of the Hoosier Salon, etc) from Winnetka, IL. Studied under G. Buehr and C. Longabaugh. Born in 1899 in Muncie, Indiana. Studied at Northwestern University, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Columbia University. She was a member of the Muncie Artist Association, North Shore Artists Association, All Ill SFA, and the Hoosier Salon.

Exhibits include:

CGA, 1943
Denver AM, 1936
Hoosier Salon, 1940-46
Evanston Women's Club, 1940, 1941 (prize), 1942 (prize), 1943-1946

Winnetka Women's Club, 1940-46

Works held at the Winnetka Women's Club.

Represented in numerous private collections.

Condition: Generally good, however, there is a light water stain in the left side margin. The drawing is secured to a black matting by masking tape fixed around the outer edges. I have not tried to remove the tape, and will therefore ship as is. Once properly framed, this drawing is sure to be a focal point of any quality collection.

This item is sold unframed.
