Born in Iowa in 1872, Francis Harvey Cutting moved to San Jose, California in 1893 where he studied with Arthur Hill Gilbert and Charles Harmon. During the 1920's, he maintained a studio in Pacific Grove where he became known for his landscapes of Monterey, Carmel and the neighboring Pacific coastline. In 1927, Cutting built a studio in nearby Campbell where he continued to work until his death in 1964. A prolific impressionist painter, he used a bright palette to compose vivid plein-air landscapes and coastal views of Northern California. Over a long career, Cutting exhibited widely and with success. He was the subject of numerous one-man shows including exhibitions at the California State Fair (1923, 1930-32), Stanford University Art Gallery (1925, 1928, 1933, 1939) and the Oakland Art Gallery, later the Oakland Museum, (1934, 1938). We are pleased to offer this fresh and breezy view of the dramatic Pacific coast near Carmel, California.
