A vintage still life oil painting, unframed, 30" by 24", signed twice at lower right (one, very faint) by listed Southern California artist BERTHA TOWNSEND COLER (1865-1948). Coler was born in Ohio and studied with Robert Henri and William Merritt Chase in New York City. By 1928 she had moved to Santa Monica, California and for the next two decades was a prolific painter in watercolor and oil, concentrating on portraits and still life, with some landscapes in the mix. Coler was a member of Women Painters of the West; she exhibited at the Santa Monica library in 1933, at the Santa Monica Art League in 1934, and at the prestigious Golden Gate International Exhibition in San Francisco in 1939. Recently, a large group of her oils and watercolors were offered in a sale at the Pacific Palisades home of her descendants, and I was fortunate to have acquired a number of these works, which I will be offering in my shop. The circa 1940 painting could benefit from a cleaning/freshening, and there are a few small pressure dimples and a light abrasion at bottom.
