Wikipedia entry
Clara McDonald Williamson (November 20, 1875 – February 17, 1976) was a 20th century American painter who worked in the tradition of naïve art. Her subjects were genre scenes of life in the American West, especially her home state of Texas. Like Grandma Moses, she started painting late in life and she achieved a national reputation despite the fact that her career lasted only two decades.
