A fine example of California plein air art by listed woman artist MARY MAISON (1886-1954), unframed, 16" by 20", signed at lower right. The work is painted directly on wood panel. Image is of a high mountain, like Mt. San Jacinto or Mt. San Gorgonio near Palm Springs, seen in early spring when snow remains on the summits as the desert blooms far below. The former Mary Cox was born in Bethlehem, PA and studied art in Paris and Philadelphia. By the early 1920's she had settled in Southern California's Imperial Valley. After first exhibiting in 1926, by 1930 she was living in Manhattan Beach, CA. Another exhibition of her works took place in Tucson in 1936. Also a talented pianist and songwriter, she was a member of the California Art Club and Palos Verdes Art Association. This painting would benefit greatly from a simple straightforward cleaning to remove decades of yellowed varnish and accumulated grime. The cleaning would transform the yellowish sky to blue.
