Francis "Frank" Harvey Cutting was born on a farm near Riceville, Iowa on October 8, 1872, Francis Cutting moved to California in 1893 and settled in Campbell. After graduation from San Jose State College, he taught school for a short while near Paso Robles but soon opted for an art career. During the 1920s he had a studio nearby in Pacific Grove where he studied with William Adam, Arthur Hill Gilbert, Charles Harmon, and Frank Pebbles. Cutting came from his birthplace in Iowa with his parents to settle in the Santa Clara valley, when a very young lad, and always has lived and painted in this area. He was a nature lover and the stately redwoods inspired some of his most interesting canvases. From these he has turned with delicate touch to the portrayal of a fruit orchard in full blossom, a field of poppies or a view of the Pacific enshrouded in mist. Cutting is best known for his landscapes. He has always used oils as his primary medium with occasional forays into watercolor. Many of his paintings have been purchased by schools and clubs as well as by individuals for their private collections. In hundreds of homes throughout California the Cutting paintings are treasured possessions. Among printed reproductions in color of his paintings have been more than 20 for post cards done by California Art and Engraving company, a firm which commissioned Cutting to paint about half of the old California Missions. He was a member of the Santa Cruz Art league for a number of years, and has exhibited work in state-wide exhibitions many times. His work has been hung in the Palace of the Legion of Honor, Gump’s’ Art Gallery, Graves Art Gallery, Rabjohn and Morcom, all of San Francisco and in Monterey, Carmel and state and county fairs. In 1927 Cutting built a home with a studio at 125 Harrison Avenue in Campbell and remained there until his death on June 8, 1964. A prolific painter and Impressionist, he used a bright palette to create landscapes of Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Pacific Grove, Columbia River, Crater Lake, the Redwood Highway, Death Valley, and the Santa Cruz mountains.
