THOMAS NASH

(American, 1856-1927)

FISHERMEN AT HERMOSA BEACH, CA. 1910

Oil on Canvas Laid Board

22 x 35⅞ Inches

Signed Lower Right 'Thomas Nash'

Additionally Signed and Titled Verso 'Hermosa Beach, Drawing in the Fishing Net'

 

A early 20th-century, panoramic coastal scene showing several fisherman straining to pull in their fishing nets on Hermosa Beach in Los Angeles, circa 1910.

 

Thomas Nash was working in southern California in 1879 when he painted a series of Kern River scenes; from there, he traveled north to Oregon where he painted several recorded views of the Columbia River. By 1880, he was sketching around the Colorado River in the Calico Mountain region and, in 1894, he painted scenes of rural Michigan. Nash returned to California from 1903-13, where he painted seascapes and landscapes from San Diego to San Francisco. We are pleased to offer this dramatic Modernist work by this rare California painter.
