Description
Virginia True was an artist active in the American Southwest in the 1920s and 1930s, particularly in Colorado, where she taught at CU Boulder and was a member of the Colorado collective The Prospectors. She returned regularly during summers after she moved to Ithaca, New York, to get her MFA at Cornell University, where she stayed to teach until she retired in 1965. Her subject matter included Western landscapes, such as this watercolor, and so she was among many artists who come to New Mexico in search of subject matter. True exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, in 1931, and one of her paintings was on the cover of the museum’s magazine El Palacio in 1933.
