Palm Springs: An Oasis of Inspiration

California has always inspired artists with its warm light and myriad of landscapes. One particular California painter’s destination is in and around Palm Springs. One example of note is our most recent acquisition, Desert Gold by Anna Hills (1882-1930), a solitary scene at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains. Our early CA painters gravitated to this place of extreme contrasts in the winter season when the snow-capped mountains framed the warm desert floor. And the fascination with wildflower superblooms is nothing new: painters such as Granville Redmond, John Gamble, and John Frost were known to depend on those blooms for their primary painting revenue.
