For your consideration, a large mid-century watercolor by the noted Bay Area artist Richard Yip (1919-1981). The scene is most probably of Mount Tamalpais, with a ranch in the foreground. The painting is noteworthy for its saturated color palette and dynamic composition. The Bay Area Expressionist work is very modernist in feeling with distinctly Cubist influenced aesthetics. The painting measures 21 ½” x 14 ½” and is housed in its beautiful original carved-wood period frame (32” x 26 ½”). The undated work is signed at the bottom left, and is most probably circa 1950’s. Excellent condition with no stains, foxing, or repairs.
