About the Item

A fine impressionist landscape oil painting by American artist Nellie Augusta Knopf (1875-1962).

After graduating with honors in 1900, she taught art at Illinois Woman's College in Jackson for 43 years.

She sketched in Wyoming, Arizona, Montana, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, and California, and became well known as a painter of mountain, pueblos, seascapes, and other outdoor scenes that brought her international recognition.
