Old watercolor painting of Yosemite National Park's famous "Tunnel Tree", signed at lower right by artist J. M. Stewart. The tree became famous after the drive-through tunnel was cut through it in 1881, making it an instant tourist attraction and one of the wonders of the astounding west. The tree fell in a storm in 1969, at which time it was estimated to be 2,100 years old. It had reached a height of 234 feet. The tunnel was 7 feet wide, 9 feet high and 26 feet long at the base. Our watercolor measures 12 1/2" by 9 3/4" inside the mat, and 20 3/4" by 16 3/4" framed. Condition is excellent, the colors rich. The artist does not seem to be listed but the style resembles somewhat that of Lorenzo P. Latimer, a Northern California artist who painted forest trees and strongly influenced his many students.
