A **PAIR** of watercolor on paper paintings of tropical South Florida landscapes, each 15 1/4" by 19 1/4" (one unframed, the other measuring 21 1/4" by 25 1/4"), both signed by Wisconsin-born artist RACHEL STEARNS (1895-1979). Stearns spent much of her life in Chicago where she received art education, some with Frederic Grant. Evidently she spent a lot of time in Florida, as a number of watercolor works featuring scenes from that state are known. These watercolors are vintage perhaps 1940's and they exhibit signs of aging. The paper is browned, colors attenuated or otherwise somewhat chemically time-altered a bit. The bright electric turquoise blue of the sub-tropical southern ocean is striking. There are a few water drop stains and pencil lines lost in the composition in the unframed work. Very scarce vintage art for the Florida art collector.
