John O’Shea was a figurative and landscape painter known for his bold and colorful work. His powerful interpretations of the landscape, particularly those depicting locales around his Monterey Peninsula home, brought a new sense of modernism to the region’s long tradition of landscape painting. In 1913, he moved to Pasadena, California, and began painting impressionistic pictures of Southern California filled with vibrating light and color, before moving permanently to the Monterey Peninsula.

This painting depicts a grand Madrone tree, native to the coastal ranges of the Pacific Northwest. With its distinctive peeling bark and orange berries, Madrone trees have historically been used in traditional Native American medicine.
