Cactus Flowers -  BUFF

Cactus Flowers
Lithograph printed in colors, circa 1938-1940, edition unknown. 10 x 7 7/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression with vibrant colors. The margins are full and the condition is fine other than for a very slight trace of an old mat line around the image. This print relates to paintings of the same subject.

She Still Stands -  BUFF

She Still Stands
Lithograph, probably 1930s, edition 50. 12 x 15 3/4 in. Signed and titled in pencil. A fine impression in fine condition. Probably full margins. A very good, typical western landscape by this underrated lithographer.

Zion -  BUFF

Lithograph, circa 1925-30, edition 50. 11 3/4 x 17 in. Signed and titled in pencil. Here we have a fine impression printed on thin wove paper. The margins are wide and the condition is very good overall. There's a trace of a soft crease in the lower part of the image and traces of soiling in the margins. This is a major print by Buff who excelled at depicting picturesque western American landscapes. He moved to America from Switzerland in 1905 and California ultimately became his home. He had a one man show at the LA County Museum in 1920 and was employed with the WPA project in the 1930s. He was a gifted lithographer and his prints are often overlooked today.
