Title: Elsie Palmer Payne (1884-1971)

Author(s): Jean Stern, Evelyn Payne Hatcher

"...As the wife of a famous artist, Edgar Alwyn Payne, Elsie had long taken a secondary role to her husband in the artistic community. This she did of her own volition. We will show, in the following pages, that this inferior ranking was not determined by the quality of her art." "...Our collection of ninety-five paintings and four sculpture shows the entire range of Elsie's work, from about 1918 to the late 1950s. The genius of her art is clearly seen at the beginning and we can trace her evolution to her mature style as one of the leading figures of the 'American Scene' style in California. We invite you to share with us this experience." Robert E. Petersen
