Large oil on canvas, 30" by 40" (37" by 47" framed), the subject world famous Sierra Nevada mountains and lake, signed at lower left by the talented California painter JAMES MERRIAM (1880-1951). The condition - craquelure at right side of the painting. See pictures. This work is very typical of the artist, both in its impressive size and in the characteristic impressionistic style of the artist. Merriam was born in Canada and was studying in Detroit, before arriving in Southern California. He traveled the Southwest and California, painting the deserts, the missions, redwood forests, the Sierra Nevada mountains, and Yosemite. As he was said to have abused alcohol later in life, his work can be uneven, and this unevenness has hurt his auction footprint. The artist's better works are highly undervalued by the present market. Mostly in the sky, there is some light stable craquelure, often found in paintings by this artist. E
