Oil on masonite painting, 13 1/2" by 11 3/4" as framed, the scene a colorful one, of two women in traditional dress under an archway looking into a courtyard, a man in traditional dress and sombrero observing at right, titled on a handwritten label bearing the artist's Chicago address, in sepia ink, "Tete-a-tete, Mexican Village". The work is there inscribed "To Agnes and Edwin Brown/Century of Progress/Chicago/1935". Note also a vintage framing sticker of Crie's Gift Shop of Rockland, Maine (this was purchased nearby). Williams was born in Vermont and died in Massachusetts, but she is most closely associated with Chicago. A student of Henry Snell, John Carlson and George Ames Aldrich, she was an exhibitor at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran, and the Baltimore Museum. A winner of the All Illinois Society, she was a silver medal winner in 1932, and a member of the Association of Chicago Painters and Sculptors. White also illustrated children's books, including 1924's "Black Beauty". This work is quite colorful and despite its modest size should add a lot to any wall. .
