Description

This portfolio of 10 images illustrates Lord Dunsany's "When the Gods Slept" and "Silent Morning". The portfolio was compiled by Helen C. Chandler, an alumna of the University of California at Los Angeles, and features women artists of UCLA. The artists are listed as follows: Louise Guthrie (1902 - 1976), Lucille Brown (1903 - 1986), Beatrice P. Rand (dates not found), Annie C. B. McPhail (1898 - 1972), Michi Hashimoto (1887 - 1972), Helen Catlin (dates not found), and Margaret Gilmore (1902 - 1998).

Helen C. Chandler, printmaker, painter, and illustrator, taught art at UCLA from 1915 to 1959. The Arthur Wesley Dow Association was founded in 1925 by members of the alumni of the UCLA art department. The name was formally changed to the Art Association of the University of California at Los Angeles in 1932.
