Impressionist plein air painting of waves breaking at the rocky coast, 20" by 24" (25" by 30" in old gold frame), signed at lower left by California listed artist ELSIE LOUISE BROWN GROSSMAN (1888-1949). This is a very nicely executed work with excellent brushwork and balanced and harmonious color, in the tradition of the Southern California plein air school. Grossman was born in Ohio and studied at the Columbus Art Institute there. By 1927, married to a Henry Grossman, she had moved to Los Angeles, where she quickly embraced the local art scene, creating landscapes and coastal paintings over a span of about twenty years. This work likely dates to the 1940's. It could benefit from a cleaning and varnish, which would definitely enhance the colors and brushwork, remove old yellowed varnish and grime, and stabilize the craquelure at mid-left area, mostly in the sea, which might be due to old moisture. The frame, which I think is older than the painting, has losses and wear consistent with many frames of its time.
