Millard Owen Sheets (American, 1907 - 1989): The River Canyon, 1937. Watercolor on cold pressed paper, signed lower left, framed. Christie's labels verso.
Born in Pomona, California and living much of his life in Southern California, Millard Sheets earned a reputation as one of the foremost watercolorists of his era. His subjects were landscapes and scenes of urban and rural people in humble living circumstances. He said that he was willing to be called a regionalist only if you accepted the idea that his work embraced a large region.
27.5 x 31.5 inches framed; 22 x 27 inches sight.
Christie's New York "East," 1996; Private collection, Oregon, USA.
