The Dead Artists Gallery presents “Mixed Zinnias in Glazed Bowl”

Texas wildflowers? Nope. “Mixed Zinnias in Glazed Bowl”, oil on canvas signed L/R “Emma Jean Mitchell” and signed/dated “1/18/28” on stretcher.Additionally, bears Houston Gallery label on verso. As an aside, excepting the ears, the bowl has the appearance of having been thrown by Maria Martinez (1887-1980), San Ildefonso Pueblo. Intriguing as well is the clever artifice the artist employed utilizing the colors of the flowers in the drapery material. Altogether, a most pleasing glimpse of Texas art in the 1920’s.
