Charleston S.C. St. Philip's Church Framed Lithograph
Julia Homer Wilson (1910-2001) was born in Georgia, but after moving to Charleston, South Carolina, in the 1940's she became known for her beautiful watercolors of local scenes and buildings. This lithographed print of her original watercolor drawing, done in pretty pastels, depicts St. Philips Church on the aptly named Church Street. The church is on the National Register of Historic Places and was built in 1836.
The print is mounted in a gold wood frame, with a double cut mat; the outer mat is off-white and textured, the inner mat a narrow line of medium blue. The framed measurements are 19 1/4 inches by 15 3/4 inches and the artwork weighs 3 3/4 pounds. The dust paper on the back is intact, with a hanging wire in place. The artist signed it in the plate, lower right. It's in excellent condition, with no damage to the frame, glass, mat or print itself. Just elegant and lovely in any room...
>>Julia Homer Wilson studied at the Cochran School of Art in Washington, D. C. and at the Slade School of Art in London. She also studied under Oskar Kokoschka in Salzburg, Austria and attended the Academy of Fine Art in Perugia, Italy. Later, she trained with Robert Brackman (1898–1980), a noted portraitist and teacher who instructed Ms. Wilson at the Madison Connecticut Art School in New England.
