T.C. Steele, California (1902)

Note: click on image to enlarge

T.C. Steele was one of the founders, and the most prominent member, of the Hoosier Group of impressionists.  Based mainly in Brown County, Steele spent most of his career painting his native Indiana.  In 1902-03, however, he traveled west to Oregon and California and painted some real gems, of which California is one.  He really distilled the essence of the Golden State in this one, didn’t he?  I love the powerful interactions going on between violet-yellow and pink-green.  Nice job, T.C.!
