Painting

Distant Hills
1907-1989, American

Sight size 12 1/4 x 18 inches, framed in a 24 x 27 1/2 inch Whistler-style frame. Signed "Millard Sheets" in pencil in the lower right. Watercolor on paper. The multifaceted Millard Sheets was one of the first of a group known as the California Scene Painters, part of a larger Regionalist movement from the 1930s to the 1960s that describes a representational style capturing scenes from everyday life. During the 1930s and 1940s, he and a small group of California artists developed a new style of watercolor painting and became known as the California Regionalist School.
