Question
Hello,

My husband and I recently purchased a watercolor signed by the artist Julia Dunn and dated 1897.  I have been unable to find out any infomation on this artist and hoped you may be able to help?

Answer
Dear Sandra, This is probably the landscape painter Julie E. Dunn (b.1839, Michigan -d.1923, San Francisco). She exhibited at the Paris Salon, 1889, and the National Academy of Design, 1891. Her works can be found at the Crocker Museum, Sacramento, CA, and the California State Library.
Cordially,
Dan
