Cornelis Botke was primarily a landscape painter but was also known as a skilled etcher and block-printer. In 1919, Botke and his wife, Jesse Arms Botke—also an important painter and muralist—moved to Carmel, California where they immediately became active members of the Carmel art community. Botke’s interest in etching began in the early 1920s and he became extremely proficient in the medium, creating works that were primarily landscapes of the rural areas near his home. In this large etching, Botke captures the dramatic and exceptional beauty of Point Lobos, an ocean-front mecca of biodiversity near Carmel that is now preserved as part of the California State Park system.
