Do You Know Who Painted This Painting?
By Jan Davis,
You may not have realized that La Biblioteca has a very nice art collection, as artists, visitors, and residents have donated many paintings through the years. These are works by noted local artists, artists in residence, and some are complete mysteries. This is where you come in. Over the next few months, we will be asking for your help in identifying the artist or providing the provenance of each piece. This may be art you remember seeing in the home of a friend, or you may recognize the subject matter. Or the artist could have been a friend of yours residing temporarily in San Miguel.
This large colorful painting is currently hanging on the south wall of the Sala de Inglés. On the reverse side of the painting is the name Hind. Who painted it and when? Who are the two girls in the painting? How did La Biblioteca come to own it?
If you have information to help us identify this painter and this work, please e-mail Debra Broussard, volunteer Acting Art Collection Registrar for the Biblioteca at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
