Rock Candy Mountain, Utah, 1931
9 x 13 inches
Influenced by her association with Georgia O’Keefe, Ina Annett (Annette) (1901 – 1990) embraced modernism in her portrayals of the American Southwest. She is listed in many publications, including Women Artists of the American West. In this depiction of the southern Utah geological feature made famous by Wallace Stegner’s autobiographical novel Big Rock Candy Mountain, Annett employs semi-abstraction and deft brushwork to create a flowing, almost sinuous portrayal.
