Color lithograph print titled "Wild Lake" at the lower left and signed in pencil at lower right by well listed California artist CONRAD BUFF (1886-1975). The artist was born in Switzerland and was in Los Angeles before the age of 20. He started there painting houses and small pictures. By the 1920's he had achieved modest success and recognition, and mural commissions came his way, as he continued to paint. It was during the 1930's that he collaborated with his artist wife Mary on children's book projects; Conrad did the illustrations. This image was probably used in one of those children's books. Buff's paintings appear with some frequency at auctions in California, and some have brought to $70,000. This print is in generally good condition. Some discoloration from exposure of sun. The print image measures 10" by 15" and the piece is 18" by 22" as framed in metal frame.
