  • Notes: Born in Philadelphia in 1871, Granville Redmond spent his formative years growing up in San Jose, California. A childhood bout of Scarlet Fever left him profoundly deaf by age three, and Redmond attended the California School for the Deaf from 1879 to 1890 where he learned how to paint and draw. His early excellence in his artistic studies led Redmond to Paris, where he attended the Academie Julian on an academic scholarship. His success in Paris led to his painting "Matin d'hiver" being exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1895.

    Redmond returned to California in 1898, and married Carrie Ann Jean one year later. The couple lived in various cities across both Northern and Southern California. By 1905, Redmond had become well-known for his paintings of both coastal scenes and the California landscape. His ability to capture the transient effects of atmosphere and light upon lush countryside brought him great renown. Yet Redmond remains best known for his paintings of California poppies blossoming on rolling hills that he could scarcely paint enough of to meet public demand.

    Granville Redmond's work can be found in many public collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Laguna Art Museum, and the Crocker Art Museum.
  • Condition: Visual: Generally good condition. Occasional slight craquelure scattered throughout. A speck of stray pigment near the upper edge, at right, however this appears to be in the hand of the artist.
