This landscape is a study in contrasting color temperatures; the warm light of sunset rakes across the frozen forms of a snow-capped mountainous landscape. Scumbled paint textures are used to augment the trees and mountain tops in this picturesque view.
Robert Wood was born in Sandgate, England on March 24, 1889. He studied painting with his father, W.J. Wood, and also at the South Kensington School of Art. Wood immigrated to Los Angeles in 1912 and thereafter led a nomadic life, painting and living all over the United States. Working from coast to coast, he painted California landscapes, Southwestern desert scenes, the High Sierras, the Grand Tetons, Texas bluebonnets, Florida, and the Woodstock area of New York.
From 1924 he was based in San Antonio, Texas where he gained a national reputation. In 1941 Wood relocated to Laguna Beach and executed many paintings of Southern California landscapes. In the 1960's he moved to Bishop, California where he remained until his death.
