Edna Wagner Piersol Windes Abstract Signed Watercolor Vintage 60''s or 70's Dandelion's


LISTED ON THURSDAY, MAY 25, 2017


The artist Edna Wagner Piersol likes to use white spaces as important design elements. Edna did a painting of an eagle and received the 1971 Friends of American Art Purchase Award for the permanent collection of the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown Ohio, which houses a comprehensive collection of American art, containing works by Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Hopper, and other American artists. Another favorite working style of this artist is to layer one image transparently over the first so as to get an impression of the workings of one's mind when viewing a scene.

I purchased this from a gentleman I have been dealing with for awhile now. He purchased an Estate's contents and as usual had no info. for me other than it was from the 60's or 70's according to gent who sold the estate contents to him for his store..

Edna as it turns out is very well known for her painting, teaching an authoring books on art. This work when I saw it I knew I had to have it. The painting reminded me of being a child and blowing what we called Santa Clauses to kingdom come. Looking back we helped to populate the common Dandelion. This is a significant work from a well known artist. I was impressed with her very much after researching her art and travels through life. She is one artist telling many stories by letting the object she is painting tell it for her.

I think talented artist's are driven to tell life's story and all things human come from the mind and if your lucky the heart as well, or spirit, I do believe this. What I was told is this is an earlier work . I am quite taken with it. The frame has a paint or a stain or something on the outside facing. The long and the short of it is the frame needs painted or replaced. Yet when it is on the wall it seems to fit, kind of abstract in its on way.

The watercolour itself is very good condition and hanging in my home office, at least for now. The frame measures approximately 21" by 17" and sight window 14" by 9-3/4".
