Other Information
Inscription: Signed by the artist lower right
Provenance: Retaining its original frame, the picture was purchased directly from the Stendahl Galleries (Rose's primary dealer in Southern California during the period) and has remained in the same family for approximately one hundred years.
Note: Guy Rose is remembered as California's preeminent Impressionist artist. Depicting a cool, mid day vista of the San Gabriel Mounatins, the painting was most likely executed in the Rosemead/Alhambra area about 1916, where Rose lived after returning from France and the East Coast. Measuring 24 X 29 inches, California Winter utilizes Rose's unique standard large format. The snow capped peaks in the back ground are (from left to right), Mount Baldy, Telegraph Peak, and Cucamonga Peak. The painting is a beautiful example of the pinnacle of Early California Impressionism and is one of the few "pure" Southern California landscapes completed by Rose.
