Ginney Wilhelm was an independent, outspoken, and talented lady who was simply great fun to be around. I met her in the mid-1960s as part of the group of artists working on Cape Ann. She loved the scenery and imagery of the region but also relished traveling and painting in Mexico, especially rural Mexico. My father purchased this detail rich still life directly from Ginney in 1969. It was a composition of various objects that were set up in the studio of her close friend, Tom Nicholas, and they both painted the same scene. I consider it one of the finest examples of her work that I have seen.
