Description
Lucia Mathews had two entries and won a Silver Medal for her watercolor "Monterey Pine" at the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition. This small, intense gouache is of the Palace of Science and was probably painted on site. Lucia had briefly studied with Whistler during a trip to Europe in 1898-99. Her husband and collaborator Arthur Mathews helped with the planning of the Exposition and did a mural, "The Victorious Spirit" as well as murals for "The Court of Palms." He exhibited 16 works and was also a juror.
