Watercolor on paper still life of roses, by California listed woman artist, EVYLENA NUNN MILLER (1888-1966). The little work has considerable presence despite its size, 5 3/4" by 8" in its wood pinkish frame (no glass, as found). The artist signed it twice, at lower right, "E. Miller". It is in generally good condition with just some edge disturbance of the thin board at extreme upper right. She was born in Kansas and was in Santa Ana in Southern California in the early years of the century. After study with Anna Hills and Hannah Tempest Jenkins at Pomona College, she attended the Art Students League in New York and the Berkshire Summer School of Art. While still a young woman, Nunn taught art at Claremont, Riverside and Santa Ana high schools. In the early 1920's she spent two years in Japan and wrote a book about her travels there and in China and the Middle East. She married about this time, taking on the new name "Miller", and then made many trips to paint the Native Americans in Colorado and New Mexico. By 1956 she was director of the prestigious Bowers Museum in Santa Ana. The artist was a member of numerous art associations and exhibited widely in Southern California.
