About the work
This painting is described and pictured on pages 24 - 25 of “The Art of Lyle V. Ball,” Native Nevadan Publications, Reno, Nevada, 1984. An inscription on reverse reads “#3514, Pyramid Beauty, Lyle V. Ball.”
Lyle Ball (1909 - 1992) descended from a pioneer family whose connection to the lands of Nevada around Reno spanned more than 150 years. Like many of his fellow Nevada artists, Ball described Nevada’s landscapes as having “a power” over him that couldn’t be described in words alone. He was largely self-taught, but acknowledged the influence of Craig Sheppard and Hans Meyer-Kassel, both of whom are represented in the collection of Nevada Fine Art.
Ball qualified for membership in the Society of Western Artists in 1970 and thereafter placed the initials S.W.A. after his signature, which assists in dating his works.
