This is a watercolor painting of the famous Philippe's French Dip Restaurant in downtown Los Angeles, an iconic area landmark to this day. The restaurant opened in 1908 and remains a vital part of Los Angeles' living history. At the restaurant, so the story goes, in the year 1918, a food preparer accidentally dropped a hot meat sandwich into the juices of the cooking pan. A customer requested it, despite its "compromised" condition. He extolled the virtues of the as-is sandwich, and a legend was born. The artist, LORRAINE FIEGE (1913-2003) painted mostly in watercolor and mostly in California. She is not well known, but she has handled the subject matter in 1930's/1940's "California Scene" manner that pays adequate tribute to the iconic eating institution. Condition is excellent. The date of execution is unknown. Measurements are 9" by 7 1/2" (13" by 11 1/4" nicely framed).
