"The popular vote method of awarding prizes in the recent exhib­it by the California Water Color Society, at the Los Angeles Museum, had interesting results indicating that the public likes realism and careful depiction of details. But all the works chosen had real dis­tinction in addition. First prize, $50, went to Gunnar Widforss for Sierra Cliff, (Los Angeles Times, November 18, 1928).

"Gunnar Widforss takes us before a great granite cliff of the Sierras and points out its intense reality," (Los Angeles Times, October 14, 1928).
