A large work by Mr Ybarra circa 1948. This watercolor is bright, vivid and double sided. I tried to tie this to one of his 1948 films but The Adventures of Casanova may be the closest. This watercolor is more detailed than most and shows the best side of the 2 images. Born in Los Angeles, CA on March 26, 1905. Ybarra first worked in an architecture firm in NYC before opting for an art career. After brief art study in Europe, he returned to Los Angeles in the mid-1930s. He found work in the art department at Warner Bros where he became an art director. He died in San Diego, CA on March 25, 2001. Member: NY WC Club. Exh: Stendahl Gallery (LA), 1935-44; Webb Gallery (LA), 1937; GGIE, 1939; LACMA, 1942; Third Street Gallery (LA), 1950.
