Here is a bit of biography about Isabel Robinson.
Isabel Robinson (1894-1976) was a native of Missouri and studied at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Pratt Institute, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, and the Cranbrook Academy of Art. She was head of the art department at West Texas State Teachers College from 1927 to 1955. While at WT, she founded the Palo Duro School of Art, a summer school offered in the 1930s. Her favorite medium was water color regional scenes as this painting exibits.
The painting was purchased locally in North Missouri at an estate auction. Framed and backed by a local gallery that has been in business decades in Kirksville , Missouri.
Best guess the painting could have been either done early by Robinson while still here in Missouri or
