Vintage Mid Century Monochromatic Pen and Ink Drawing by Zella Mae Dickinson

Vintage Mid Century Monochromatic Pen and Ink Drawing by Zella Mae Dickinson

A family outing at the beach depicted in a pen and ink drawing by modernist painter Zella Mae Dickinson. What appears to be a family get together is obscured by the faceless members creating a moody element to the ritual of family.

This expressionist drawing is framed in a luscious, rustic, rococo wood frame. We will be re-matting the drawing with fresh, acid free paper.

Painter and art teacher, Dickinson, was born in somewhere in the great plains of Nebraska on March 12, 1895. Dickinson received her art training at Nebraska State University, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, California. Dickinson painted in oils, watercolors, acrylics, pen and ink, and woodcuts. Dickinson was a member of the California Watercolor Society, Women Painters of the West, the San Diego Artists Guild, the San Diego Watercolor Society, the San Diego Art Institute. She was a life member of the Laguna Beach Art Association. Her works were exhibited widely in groups, as well as one person shows. Dickinson’s works were also exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Pasadena Art Museum, the M.H DeYoung Memorial Museum, and the California Palace of Legion of Honor in San Francisco, the San Diego Museum of Art, and the San Diego Art Institute. Dickinson's works are included in private collections worldwide. Dickinson worked out of her studio at the Spanish Village in San Diego’s Balboa Park.

The drawing itself measures 6” in height by 8” wide, within the mat. The frame measures 13 3/4” height by 15 3/4” wide. The depth of the frame is 1 1/2”.
