Pastel of American Sailor by Orpha Klinker c. 1943
We have just added this image of a pastel done by Orpha Klinker c. 1943. We're hoping that one of Orpha's admirers will be able to give us the inscription at the bottom on the work, and a lead about its location.
Orpha Klinker was not only a major California artist, but a woman of great patriotism. This sailor's portrait is among many works she did to support American troops during World War II.
