Dulah Llan Evans Krehbiel
Celebrating Life
Oil on canvas

29 x 32 "

The Krehbiel Corporation

It was in California during the early 1920's that Dulah began painting in the modernistic style. She created works that were more introspective in nature and which had spiritual overtones. She became interested in the organization of multiple figures, often using groupings of three (perhaps to reveal a spiritual synthesis) in surrealistic mountain landscapes.  Dulah created different tensions with each canvas by the placement of subject figures in positions juxtaposed to their rocky surroundings.  "Celebrating Life" is one of several of such works.
