1 Mrs. W. H. Wiester [Lucy E. Wiester] 1900 - 1901 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF RENOWNED CALIFORNIA STILL LIFE ARTIST
NAPA VALLEY CALIFORNIA CA ST. HELENA 1900 Good Autograph
On offer is a super, manuscript diary by renowned California painter Lucy E. Wiester, as evidenced by the holograph entry "Mrs. W. H. Wiester 1900-1901" and then her address in San Francisco also in her hand [there are archival notes in pencil in a later hand reading: 'St. Helena Diary' where she resided in Napa Valley California]. It appears our writer used an older 1897 diary which has about 9 days entries for 1897 by the previous owner [almost certainly a family member as similar people are mentioned] but then Lucy picks up the book and writes for the most daily entries from January 1st through May 16th, 1900 then somewhat more sporadically to April 1901. We learn that Lucy is a married, busy, thriving artist and active member of the community in Napa Valley. [Research finds she was born in 1843 Illinois.] The diary relates many instances of wild-flowering, hearing concerts like the Knickerbocker Quartet and the Neopolitain mandolin, California Club meetings, artist trips and much, much more. She does a great job mentioning the names of her visitors, contacts and intimates. This is a very interesting bit of California Americana of an early 20th century artist. Overall G.
