Granville Redmond produced a body of work that captures California’s diverse topography, vegetation, and color. Representing both northern and southern parts of the state, his paintings range in style from contemplative, Tonalist works that evoke a quiet calm, to dramatic and colorful Impressionist scenes. Born in Philadelphia, he contracted scarlet fever as a toddler, which left him permanently deaf. Soon after, his family moved to California.

Today Redmond is best known for his colorful Impressionist oil paintings depicting the California landscape ablaze with poppies and other native flora. Silent film star Charlie Chaplin, Redmond’s friend and supporter, said of these paintings, “There’s such a wonderful joyousness about them all. Look at the gladness in that sky, the riot of color in those flowers. Sometimes I think that the silence in which he lives has developed in him some sense, some great capacity for happiness in which we others are lacking.” Today, Redmond is widely considered one of California’s top early artists.
