Granville Redmond received his art training in San Francisco and Paris. He painted in a distinctive personal style, inspired by French Barbizon and Impressionist exemplars as well as the great American artists George Inness and James McNeill Whistler and California painters such as William Keith and Arthur Mathews. Mr. Redmond's paintings are truly a celebration of the California landscape. Especially notable are his noctures and dimly lighted scenes, which because of the artist's accuracy of memory reveal pictorial truths athat would elude a more casual observer. This is a catalog of an exhibition held at the Oakland Museum, the Laguna Art Museum and at Gallaudet University, 1988-1989.
