About

Provenance On consignment with the gallery from a Pasadena, California corporate collection. The painting was displayed at Mutual Savings and Loan on Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena. Description The painting is a classic Southern California plein air landscape scene depicting rolling hills with scattered oaks and fields of golden poppies. Bickerstaff's primary subject was of California's pristine landscapes. Biography Landscape painter, George Bickerstaff (April 12, 1893, Marianna, Arkansas - July 12, 1954, Ukiah, California) was primarily a self-taught artist except for a brief period at the Art Institute of Chicago. He led a peripatetic existence before moving to California in 1922. His early years were spent in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Van Nuys. He exhibited often in the latter with Paul Lauritz. A prolific oil painter of mountain and desert scenes, his landscapes often include eucalypti as well as rolling hills of California wildflowers. Occasionally, he painted seascapes, still lifes, and western and Indian scenes. He was adept at promoting his own work and sold many of them to decorate hotel lobbies, hospitals, mortuaries, and rest homes.
