Polia Pillin Watercolor, "Dancing Horses," 1960s


An expressive, richly-colored watercolor of prancing horses by the American painter, watercolorist, and ceramist Polia Pillin (1909-1992). Signed by the artist. Dancing horses are a popular theme in her work. Born in Poland, in 1924 Pillin immigrated to Chicago, lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico during the 1930s, and in 1948 moved to Los Angeles where, along with her husband William, she set up a pottery (1948-1992). Though known primarily for her ceramics, this lyrical drawing demonstrates her mastery of watercolor. A beautiful, imaginative, poetic work. Pillin's art has been exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Oakland Museum. Framed measures: W 25.5 in x H 21.75 in.
