On loan from Kim and Dr. Joseph Damiani 

Annita Delano (1894 - 1979) became a leader of the modernist painting movement in California, both as a painter and a professor of art. In 1917, she earned her diploma from Los Angeles State Normal School (UCLA) and then began her teaching career at UCLA from 1920 to 1963.  From 1944 to 1946, she was on the faculty of the Otis Art Institute. She lived primarily in Los Angeles but was noted for her southwestern desert landscapes and Indians figure and genre.  Beginning 1925, she painted most summers in New Mexico and Arizona, living among the Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni Indians. Her paintings were widely exhibited during her lifetime, both as part of group shows and in 30 solo exhibitions of her work.

This exhibition showcases her lifetime of work including, paintings, watercolors and well as many sketches, artist notes and personal memorial.
