One of dozens of drawings by this artist that I recently acquired, (ask to see others, not shown in my shop) this is a sketch in soft pencil on paper, the drawing and frame 20 1/2" by 16 1/2", signed at lower left, not dated but likely circa 1940's, by California and Massachusetts listed artist DAISY MARGUERITE HUGHES (1882-1968). Hughes was born and died in Los Angeles but in between she spent much time in the Provincetown art colony on Cape Cod. Hughes exhibited widely (even at the Paris Salons) and was a member of many art associations. Her paintings of Provincetown houses and streets are quite popular at auction on the east coast, but she is also widely thought of as a Southern California artist. This drawing is in good condition. The subject is quasi religious, with perhaps a Joseph and Mary standing above a fanciful house or castle...perhaps, a drawing to "bless" a house-- See the net for more examples of Hughes' work.
