A large (19" by 23") watercolor painting of striking desert formations of the Southwest, with distinct modernist overtones, signed at lower right by listed artist MYRTLE MAE HOFFMAN CAMPBELL (1886-1978). The work depicts a dramatic landscape, perhaps in Utah, or Arizona, the geologic formations seemingly mimicking organic forms and Moderne and Art Deco shapes. The signs of man are scant; some shacks and a stack at upper left. Campbell was born in Columbus, Nebraska and died in Boulder, Colorado after a long career as an artist. She is known for high-key color still life, and landscapes of Colorado mountain mining towns. She painted also in Arizona, New Mexico, Kansas and Nebraska. A student of the Art Institute of Chicago, she went on to be an educator herself later in life. Campbell exhibited at the New York World's Fair in 1939, at the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She was a member of the Prairie Watercolor Society and other professional artist organizations. This impressive watercolor is presently framed but the frame is much too large for the work, and the glass is of the non-glare type which is very dated. It will be shipped unframed. The watercolor was laid down (pasted or glued down) to a thick board long ago.
