Oil on canvas laid on board painting of a windswept cypress type tree by the coast dunes, 8 1/2" by 4 1/4" (14 1/2" by 10 1/2" attractively framed). Although unsigned (and Detreville's output frequently WAS unsigned), the handling, subject matter and color palette are strong indicators of the hand of the noted California painter. I have owned and sold other unsigned paintings as being by Detreville, and I will stand by this being one of his works. Detreville was born in South Carolina but is now thought of entirely as a California artist. According to the Hughes biography, the artist was born "into a prominent old family of French ancestry", his grandfather having fought in the Revolutionary War with George Washington. Detreville is considered to have been a self-taught artist. By 1892 he was in California, settling in Stockton and then by 1910 in San Francisco. A prolific artist who promoted his own work, the most commonly seen paintings are of the San Francisco Bay area, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, and Northern California. The painting could use a cleaning but could be enjoyed as it is.
