Granville Redmond produced paintings capturing California's diverse topography, vegetation, and color. Representing both northern and southern parts of the state, these range from contemplative Tonalist works that evoke a quiet calm, to dramatic and colorful Impressionist scenes—especially of California hillsides and meadows ablaze with poppies and other native flora. Today, Redmond is considered one of California’s top early artists.
Based on an unpublished manuscript by the late Mildred Albronda (1912–1998), this book was written and compiled by Scott A. Shields and published in conjunction with the exhibition Granville Redmond: The Eloquent Palette, organized by the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento.
