A small but impressive watercolor painting of silhouetted eucalyptus trees at sunset or dawn, 3" by 2 1/4" (11" by 10 1/2" framed), signed at lower left by the noted California artist ALBERT THOMAS DeROME (1885-1959). The work is tastefully framed with mat and is wall-ready. DeRome was born on California's Central Coast. He studied art at the Mark Hopkins Institute in San Francisco with Arthur Mathews, and Lorenzo Latimer, and took on commercial work (advertising and political cartoons). In the first decades of the new century DeRome became an active landscape artist in both oil and watercolor, traveling the length of California and further afield in the Southwest. He became friendly with Percy Gray, Gunnar Widforss, Will Sparks, and William Keith. A tragic 1931 auto accident ended his commercial career, an agreement with an insurance company forbidding his selling work. After that point as he regained his abilities, he gave away a painting a month. He won awards even in his later, post-accident years, but was not able to enjoy the financial rewards of the commercial market. DeRome died in Carmel in 1959, having become a familiar figure in the Monterey/Pacific Grove area.
