It is hand signed by Edna and noted by Edna 1941. This is a beautiful piece of art with dark undertones.This is truly one a collector of Hibel should own. I was very lucky to find this particular oil for sale. This is one of a kind and has never been duplicated in print. When purchasing from me please be assured all of my pieces are authentic. I have seen a few on ebay recently that are incorrectly identified by the sellers.
Edna was born in 1917 in Massachusetts. Ednas' talent was encouraged and first developed under the direction of noted portrait artist Gregory Michaels. Edna then studied with renown Russian and German masters Alexandr Yakovlev and Karl Zerbe at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts. Completing her training at the Museum School in 1939.
Hibel was awarded the Ruth B. Sturtevant Traveling Fellowship. In 1940 the Boston Museum purchased one of Hibels paintings for its permanent collection, making Edna the youngest artist of that time to be so honored. Edna has collectors the world over.
She had a private sitting with the Queen of England, she was the first women allowed to tour behind "The Great Wall" of China. She was dubbed the "Hippie Grandma " by Lucy Baines Johnson. I was fortunate to know her and admire her as not only an artist but also a teacher and a friend. I represented Edna for 20 years. Sadly Edna pasted Away on December 5th 2014. She was a great artist and a very kind loving person. When purchasing from me you can be assured my pieces are authentic as I worked as Edna's Curator for many shows through out the United States. Ee travel together for these shows and Edna was always telling me stories about her life and art. Edna is truly one of the greatest artist of her time. I was very honored to be this close to Edna for 20yrs. I never saw Edna have a bad day. She was the most positive person I have ever known.
