About The Artist:

William Keith (1838-1911) was a Scottish-American painter famous for his California landscapes. He is associated with Tonalism and the American Barbizon school. Although most of his career was spent in California, he started out in New York, made two extended study trips to Europe, and had a studio in Boston in 1871-72 and one in New York in 1880.The artist's legacy is vast. Saint Mary's College of California in Moraga owns more than 180 paintings by William Keith. The collection was started by Brother Fidelis Cornelius, a Christian Brother who taught art at the college and who wrote a 900-page, 2-volume biography, "William Keith, Old Master of California". Two thematic exhibitions of his work are held each year in the Keith Room of the Saint Mary's College Museum of Art (formerly the Hearst Art Gallery). Keith Avenue in Berkeley was named after William Keith. Mount Keith was named after William Keith by Helen Gompertz (later Helen LeConte) in July 1896. San Francisco Mayor Edward Robeson Taylor published an 1898 book of sonnets based on Keith's paintings.
