Original Miniature Watercolor Natalie Hays Hammond New York Skyline In The Evening 1930's Noir Style

Natalie Hays Hammond (1904-1985) was an American Painter, Water colorist and Fabric Designer. Her work started out in the 1920's as a Costume designer and by the 1930's developed a form of Appliqué —"ornamental needlework in which pieces or patch of fabric in different shapes and patterns are sewn or stuck onto a larger piece to form a picture or pattern." After 1957 she stopped painting and concentrated on needlework.

For me, her miniature watercolors are amazing, very controlled and precise, such a hard thing to do in that medium. This one especially, the New York skyline at night with the almost all the light glowing in the buildings. Such a Noir style and subject for the 1930's and what better place than New York for that subject. This amazing and small Miniature is what collectors of her art look for.
