LOCKWOOD DE FOREST (AMERICAN, 1850-1932) CALIFORNIA

Lot 2280 Details

Description
LOCKWOOD DE FOREST (AMERICAN, 1850-1932) CALIFORNIA COASTAL LANDSCAPE, oil on board, likely a Santa Barbara scene depicting trees clinging to rocky cliffs overlooking the Pacific, signed and dated lower left. Housed in a modern frame. 1929. 9 1/2" x 13 3/4" sight, 14 3/4" x 18 3/4" OA.
Very good visual condition with minor areas of discoloration and four minute tack holes at sight edges.
Provenance: From a Culpeper, VA collection.
Catalogue Note: Born to a wealthy family in New York, Lockwood De Forest (1850-1932) began and ended his career in the arts as a painter primarily. The nephew of iconic Hudson River Valley School landscape painter, Frederich Edwin Church (1826-1900), De Forest first began regular training with his uncle while on an extended trip to Italy. Upon his return to the United States, De Forest operated a studio in New York and begin to develop a broader interest in interior design and architecture. In 1879, he helped to form Associated Artists, an innovative design firm, with Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) and Samuel Colman (1832-1920). That same year, he traveled to India, where he became fascinated with Eastern art, architecture, and craft, and greatly expanded his own stylistic sensibilities in the process. After establishing a woodcarving business in India, De Forest returned to his native city to open a lavish studio dedicated to offering material furnishings in the then-fashionable Aesthetic taste. Highly successful as a decorator and designer, De Forest worked with many notable Gilded Age clients, such as Andrew Carnegie and Mark Twain. In the early 20th century, he purchased property near Santa Barbara, California, where he returned to painting in earnest, often coastal scenes, such as the present example offered here.
