Saltillo - Mexico
When Charles returned from living in Mexico, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch published a full-page article with many of his watercolors. This example was not included in the newspaper, but was gifted to Vincent Franks, Charles’s brother-in-law. Vincent presided over Charles’s marriage to Catherine Woermann five years earlier.
The watercolor is signed “TO VINCENT, CHARLES O. EAMES ’34” in the bottom left corner and “SALTILLO - MEXICO” is written on mounting paper.
