Edith Ward Hunt was an Iowa-born artist who is today known as a painter of still life and California landscape. After moving around the Midwest, in the teens and early 'twenties, she was in Yakima, Washington by 1926, and in Burlingame, near San Francisco, by 1930. This impressionist oil on canvas, 26 1/2" by 22" and 30" by 26" framed, appears to have been laid on the cardboard by the artist herself, as on the reverse in pencil appears the title, "Primroses and Poppies", and her name, as well as the original price "125.00", and a Berkeley, California address. The work probably dates to the 1930's. Put it in a gold frame and watch the transformation. The board is a little uneven, not perfectly flat, but other than that the painting is in very good condition. WL.
