San Francisco

Estelle Chaves

Artists Co-Op

There is little doubt of her virtuosity but one is curious to know what kind of a painter this young Californian would be if she dropped her borrowed mannerism. At the same gallery Ada Garfinkel shows a number of abstracts and Jean Kalisch some cubistic illustrations of the city scene.
