Minnie Holsinger, The Farmer's Wife 35, Country Gentleman Magazine, G. Kay, Gertrude Kay

This is blog #33 of my on-going series sharing pages from the scrap book of Minnie Holsinger, which she compiled in the 30s and 40s while she and Grandfather Charlie Holsinger were scrimping and saving to buy a farm.

This painting, for an issue of Country Gentleman Magazine, is by the mysterious artist known as “Kay”. The only likely artist I could find is “Gertrude Kay” (1884-1939). The dates almost match by Gertrude’s style is completely different than this artist’s.

Pinterest has several covers of CGM with covers credited to “G. Kay”. I can find no information about the artists which surprises me since s/he was quite prolific during this period.
