For your consideration, a rare watercolor illustration by Virginia Battaile Battle Betts (1880 – 1942). This richly detailed and vibrant watercolor features a bright color palette and fine details. Most probably circa 1930’s, this charming work portrays a well-healed and coiffed society woman applying her makeup. The painting measures 13” x 9” in its original 14 ½” x 10 ¾” gilded frame and is in excellent vintage condition with no rips scratches or tears and displays minor age foxing, commensurate with its age. A painter known especially for portraits, Virginia Betts also was an illustrator and muralist whose murals hung in the Ballroom of the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas. She was born in Yazoo, Mississippi and lived in Waco and then in 1907, moved to Dallas where she spent most of her career.She studied in Paris before World War II, exhibited at the Paris Salon and with the Joint Exhibition of Society of French Artists
