1940'S American School : The Big Sky (0070). Unknown -Unsigned (From The Robert Landry Collection) The William Frederick Brooks Collections
   
This original watercolor painting measures 15 by 22 inches.
It dates circa 1940-1950.
It is signed, Nancy Louise Hickman in the lower right corner.
It is painted on heavy watercolor paper.
It is in excellent condition, unmatted and unframed.
The paper has a French watermark embossed in one corner.

This is an original watercolor painting.
It is not a giclee, print or copy of any kind.

It was purchased by me as part of a collection of original watercolor paintings amassed by a student of the well known, published and listed American artist, Robert Landry.

Her name was Nancy Louise Hickman. She died in the 1980's.

There is very little known about Nancy Louise Hickman except that she had a rather large number of outstanding watercolors by Robert Landry in her estate, along with more of her own, many of which were very good or even exceptional. At the time, years ago, I purchased them for myself and was not able to purchase the entire collection. Some of the unsigned paintings were by Hickman, some were by Landry and some are unknown artists who either may have known.

Given the quantity of paintings she had kept over the years, there has been speculation that possibly she was more than just a student, based on the number of Robert Landry paintings that she owned and the obvious similarity to many of her paintings.

Note: Robert Landry was a married man (not to her) and none of this has ever been documented. It is merely speculation based on circumstantial evidence.

These watercolor were kept in deep storage so that there has been very little light on them for decades. Many of them are as crisp and clean as the day they were painted -50 to 60 years ago.
