    Florence McClung began painting in the early 1920s, when she studied with Frank Reaugh, Olin Travis, Frank Klepper, and Alexander Hogue, before training at several institutions across the country. Often following an urge to romanticize the rural landscape, McClung embraced regional subject matter. She largely pursued her own stylistic tendency toward the idealization of rural settings instead of the abstraction favored by many of her contemporaries and teachers. McClung sketched and painted around Taos, New Mexico, and studied at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center with Adolf Dehn. Her travels to and from Taos and Colorado Springs provided her with many interesting subjects for her brush and lithographic crayon.

    Condition Report*:

    There appears to be a few small spots of light craquelure, most notably tiny flecks of loss to the impasto in lower left corner; under UV exam, there appears to be several tiny touches of inpaint along top edge as well as the pale yellow pigment of the horizon fluorescing. Framed Dimensions 29.25 X 35.5 Inches
