Hanson Duvall Puthuff (American, 1875-1972), California Landscape with Ocean Beyond, oil on canvas board, ca. 1970

Item Description:

No visible signature, inscribed verso "To Ruth - With Love, From Louise" and "Hanson painted this in 1970 at 95 years of age" (the artist's wife (Louise) to the current owner's mother-in-law (Ruth)), unframed

The inscription on the verso corroborates this history, as it states, "To Ruth, with love from Louise" and below in the same hand, "(Hanson painted this in 1970 at 95 years of age)". Ruth is the name of the current owner's mother-in-law, and Puthuff was, of course, married to Louis White at that time.

Condition:

With two small areas of paint loss to the clouds and one additional area of paint loss to the foreground, see photographs. Please contact cataloging@lofty.com for specific condition questions and to request a full condition report.

Provenance:

Hanson Duvall Puthuff was a personal friend of the current owner's husband's father, who worked at Disney Studios. On Saturdays, he and other Disney artists gathered at Hanson Puthuff's La CaƱada home for landscape painting lessons. The painting was given to the current owner's mother-in-law by Puthuff's wife.
