Oil on canvas laid on board still life of pink roses, 7 3/4" by 9 3/4" as nicely framed (vintage gold frame), signed at lower left by the noted California painter NEVADA WILSON (1877-1961). This is a small work, typical of many produced by this painter of desert landscape and still life. The canvas has been laid on board and is puckering a bit at left edge as shown but is not noticeable when viewed head-on. The artist, a true Nevadan, was born to the manager of the Elko-Tuscarora stage line in the remote northeastern corner of the vast state. She was raised in Tuscarora but found her way to San Jose, California for education by 1895, returning to Nevada, where she ran an art studio and taught art from 1908 to 1916. Wilson was a student of Lorenzo P. Latimer, Paul Lauritz, and Jack Wilkinson Smith. After 1916 Nevada Wilson lived and painted in Los Angeles. This is a very attractive little work by a listed early woman artist.
