Oil on canvas landscape of the California coast with classic wind-shaped Monterey Cypress tree, possibly the famous tree on 17 Mile Drive on the Monterey Peninsula near Carmel, measuring 24" by 20" and 1 5/8" wide vintage white painted wood frame, signed at lower right "Bessie Lasky" and dated there "41". This is a beautiful California plein air work by noted artist BESSIE MONA LASKY (1888-1972), a lesser known but listed painter of the California school. She was Boston-born and spent some years in the New York area before moving to Los Angeles in the late 1920's, where she was the wife of the prominent Hollywood studio magnate of the time, Jesse Lasky. Bessie in the early years painted in the Rockport area of Cape Ann in Massachusetts. Later she exhibited at the National Academy and the National Association of Women Artists. While in Los Angeles, no less gallery than the Stendahl Gallery, which exhibited and sold the works of the likes of Edgar Payne and Guy Rose, also showed her works. This painting dating from mid-life is highly impressionistic. It has just emerged from the restorer's studio, where three small torn areas were very expertly patched and inpainted, and decades of yellowed varnish were removed. Now the painting is ready for its second life in the collection of a lover of California plein air art. *E*
