Siegriest was a member of the Group of Six who worked closely together in California in the early 1900s. They turned away from the somber tonalism and realism of painters from the eastern states and painted with an aggressive Fauvist palette and loose brushwork of Impressionism. This painting is a wonderful example of the "slice of California life" subject matter the group favored, with its emphasis on bright warm light and nature.
Estimate: $7,000 - $9,000.
