Artist: William C. Grauer
Untitled (West Virginia fam valley and blue hills)
By William C. Grauer
Located in Fairlawn, OH
After creating murals for the Greenbrier Hotel in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia in 1932, together Grauer and his wife founded and co-directed the successful Old White Art Colony, School and Gallery, which they continued to frequent during the summer months in the 1930s and 1940s.
