An original painting on board by Lloyd Lozes Goff.
Goff signed the back of the board and titled the work “Merida (Yucatan).” He signed and dated the work again on the old backing board with the slightly different title, ” ‘Merida Cathedral’ (Yucatan), Gouache On Panel by Lloyd Lozes Goff.” Below that is the inscription “To Mrs E.E. Baca, in appreciation for all her legal help. Sincerely, Lloyd Lozes Goff, April 1977, Albuquerque, N.M.”
Born in Dallas, Texas, Lloyd Lozes Goff called New Mexico home. He studied at the Art Students League in New York and at the University of New Mexico. He was an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of New Mexico and was Acting Head of the Art Department from 1944-47.
