Oil on canvas street scene, most likely of Mexico, 18" by 24", unframed, signed at lower right by California painter JOSIE (JO ANITA) STARKEY (1895-1962). This is a colorful work by a noted California woman artist known for her genre paintings. She is listed in many reference works including Dawdy, Hughes, and Falk's Who Was Who in American Art, and the Dictionary of Women Artists. The present painting has suffered some abuse, there being two small punctures at left center, well hidden in the design, and there is a web of missing paint at left center and above the dog, showing in the photos as a spidery gray-white area. Obviously this will need restoration. I've provided a number of images of this area but feel free to contact me for others. This should appeal to the collector of California art or Mexicana.
