Esther Anna Hunt (1875-1951) is known today in California art circles as a keen observer of the traditional culture as displayed in San Francisco's Chinatown. Her paintings and plaster bust models of young girls in traditional costume make regular appearances in auctions of California art. This work appears to have been created by one of Hunt's many early 20th century imitators. Unsigned, there are what appear to be initials "M.E.E." on the inside of the mat and on the inside of the backing. The work (12 3/4" by 5 3/4" inside the mat, 16 1/4" by 9" simply framed) does not appear to have the refined handling typical of Hunt's works, but it will certainly draw the interest of collectors. Condition is excellent.
