A classic Nevada landscape executed in pastel in 1945 by Hans Meyer-Kassel. The artist created this drawing at the top of correspondence for a close relative or personal friend. Few if any are known to exist outside of the artist’s family, examples of which are currently on display at the Nevada Museum of Art exhibition “Hans Meyer-Kassel, Artist of Nevada.” Inscription on reverse reads “Nevada, by Professor Hans Meyer-Kassel, from Sis Rearden, 4/16 - 1945, To W.S.”
About the artist…
Hans Meyer-Kassel (1872 - 1952) spent the final fifteen years of his life in northern Nevada, having journeyed from his native Germany in the early 1930s to become guest artist and lecturer at Amherst College in Massachusetts. An invitation to exhibit in Pasadena, California, led the artist to seek a new home in the American West, and he quickly resettled in Reno. Later he moved to Carson City before eventually finding a home in Genoa. Although Meyer-Kassel is highly respected for his portraits, it is his Nevada landscapes near Reno, Carson Valley, and Genoa that are most treasured, and what defines him most as a Nevada artist.
