Martha Levy: Rockport; Harbor View; and Rocky Shore
Three gouache on paper, c. 1945, all unsigned, Rockport titled and dated on the reverse.
All 9 x 12 in. (sheet), unframed.
Note: New York artist Martha Levy trained at the Art Student's League and attended their summer program in Woodstock, NY from 1926 to 1932. There she focused on landscape painting and honed her skills with her chosen medium, oil over a base of tempera. During the 1930's, Levy joined the Public Works of Art Program to supplement her income. In 1935, she joined the WPA Federal Art Project where she worked on murals commissioned as part of the New Deal program. Her views of the Maine seaside are painted in the same style as her Woodstock work and are similar to the Realism employed in many WPA mural projects of the time.
Rockport irregularly trimmed at bottom and with remains of old brown paper tape around the reverse of the sheet edges. All with some surface soiling. Rocky Shore with a crease at top. Rocky Shore and Harbor View with remains of old glue around the reverse of the sheet edges.
