Artistic Focus Much of Lucy Pierce’s subject matter was the people, buildings, and landscapes of the Monterey Peninsula. Whether a still life or portrait, Pierce’s paintings portray the era in which she painted. Often having a very Art Deco flair, her early paintings display a sensitivity to the 1920s glamour being depicted.
• Born in San Francisco in 1886, Lucy Pierce studied
privately with Xavier Martinez while in her early teens.
