Vintage San Francisco Cityscapes
San Francisco native Christine Miller High (1911-2010) began her art training at Miss Burke’s School and continued her education at the Katherine Branson School. After graduating she traveled extensively in the Orient and the Dutch West Indies and on her return to entered the Fashion Art School under Maria von Ridelstein and watercolor master Eliot O’Hara.
Her plein air watercolors explore scenes of 1940s San Francisco, and were acknowledged with the awarding of a one-woman show the de Young Museum in 1941, although it was never installed because of the outbreak of World War II. Her work was shown at the Oakland Museum.
These rare vintage paintings, courtesy of the High family, are being exhibited for the first time in decades. They are done mostly on heavy weight Veritable Papier D’Arches Torchon paper.
