One thought on “The Wilna Hervey Gallery

    A fascinating article! My grandparents, who were Wilna’s contemporaries, owned one of her enamel on copper paintings of a group of riders and horses dated 1966, which I inherited. They may well have known Wilna and her partner socially. Avid thoroughbred horse racing fans, they spent every August in Saratoga Springs, and also spent time every year in Beverly Hills, where they had friends in the movie business from the 1920’s until my grandfather’s death in 1982 (the same year Nan died). So the chances they knew her were high. Thank you so much for the biography.
