This was recently found on a buying trip up in the San Francisco and wine country area, and is typical of the style of paintings that came out of the New Deal era Work's Progress Administration's program of hiring artists throughout the country who were employed by the government to paint paintings & murals, create sculptures, and other art forms to adorn post offices, schools, and many other public buildings at the time.

While we found no information on Morton, the painting is still very collectible because of it's style and workmanship.
