A color pencil or crayon drawing of corn plants in a strange, modernistic landscape, 9 3/4" by 12 3/4" (20" by 23 1/2" in attractive Southwest-style frame, see patterned corners especially) signed at lower right and dated there '83 by listed California artist EVERETT GEE JACKSON (1900-1995). As a late work, it very much still reflects the skill of the artist. Jackson was born in Mexia, Texas, growing up in the Dallas area, before studying at Texas A & M and the Art Institute of Chicago. By 1923 he was in Guadalajara, Mexico, drawing inspiration from the major Mexican muralists. He returned to the San Diego area in 1928, remaining there for the remainder of his long life. Jackson's style always reflected the modernist mural influence on him. He illustrated the noted book "Ramona" by Helen Jackson Hunt. In 2007 the San Diego Museum of Art published a book on Jackson. Top auction record, for an oil, appears to be $10,000. Drawings appear to be scarce. Frame has slight wear commensurate with its age. Allow for reflections in photo of the work and its entire frame.
