Description

Pasadena, California printmaker Adele Watson, a close friend of Kahlil Gibran, was drawn to Symbolism and Mysticism and admired artists such as Arthur B. Davies and William Blake. Her work after 1925 began to incorporate and merge the human figure into the landscape.

The mysterious, mountainous landscape of the Four Corners area proved to be a rich source for a number of large lithographs.

Watson often included human and animal figurative elements in her work and viewers with active imaginations can spend time looking at the details.
