Lois Macuga Gifts Painting to the Legacy

CR782

Nude – watercolor on paper

The James Fitzgerald Legacy is very excited to announce that Lois Macuga, a painter from Queechee Vermont, has gifted to the Legacy a wonderful watercolor of Fitzgerald’s wife Pegs.  The painting, entitled “Nude”, shows the dancer drying herself after a bath, with one leg lifted on a wooden chair.  The setting of the painting is special, as it is one of only a few paintings known to have been completed showing the interior of the house/studio that Fitzgerald built in Monterey, California in the early 1930s.  We are extremely grateful to Lois Macula for gifting this wonderful watercolor, which will be on view in the Fitzgerald studio on Monhegan during the 2015 season.
