This lot features an oil on artist board landscape painting by Marion Kavanagh Wachtel (American 1870 - 1954). Wachtel was a plein air painter in watercolors and oils that lived and worked with her artist husband Elmer Wachtel in the Arroyo Seco near Pasadena, California, in the early 20th century. Wachtel trained at the Art Institute of Chicago, and under William Merritt Chase in New York. She was a member of the New York Watercolor Club. Later, she taught in public schools and at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1903 she journeyed to California, where she studied under William Keith, and Elmer Wachtel, whom she married in 1904. She painted primarily figures and portraits in the east and then changed to landscapes of the dramatic Californian and Southwestern terrain. Her medium of choice was watercolor, but she began painting in oils after her husbandÂ’s death. Signed "Marion Kavanagh Wachtel-" lower left register. Measures 13" x 16".
