This is a rather typical example of the art of prolific California artist LEONARD BORMAN (1894-1995), probably painted from his cabin/house deep in the California desert to which he moved in 1955. Measuring 28" by 37 1/2" in a wood frame, the painting is signed at lower left. So I would guess the age as 1950's or 1960's. The painting is on canvas. The condition is very good, light craquelure at center upper in the sky area. Borman was born in England but in his twenties was already in California, after a brief period in Manitoba, where he served in the Canadian military during World War I, and in Chicago, where he attended the Art Institute, taking lessons from etcher Joseph Pennell and renowned painter George Bellows. Once arriving in the west, he explored his new surroundings, including many of the most scenic areas of California and Oregon. The stock market crash affected his grand plans, to create paintings and sell them in the east to rich patrons. Instead he painted less grandiose works, framed them, and sold them locally in the Los Angeles area, in Sierra Madre near Pasadena. According to a website dedicated to the artist and his long life, he left for the desert after the air quality in the Pasadena area began to negatively affect his health. Today we have a plethora of paintings, drawings and etchings by the artist. He was amazingly prolific, creating landscapes, portraits, still lifes, marine scenes, and animal paintings. Quality of the works varies considerably, but his finest works are quite impressive indeed. Check out the website to see a number of his paintings. E
