Description One of Southern California's premier Impressionist artists, John Marshall Gamble is best known for his idyllic plein-air landscape paintings. His works set in the Santa Barbara area that feature quiet pastoral views of the countryside and fields of wildflowers are especially sought after by collectors. This fine example of this influential artist's work showcases the vibrant, bright yellow flowers of the mustard plant and the rich, deep green hues of the area's oak trees and grassy rolling hills. Gamble's superb technical skills are highlighted in his handling of light and atmospheric effects, one of the most important aspects of the Impressionist genre.

Gamble was born in 1863 in New Jersey, later spending time with his family in Auckland, New Zealand before moving to San Francisco in 1883. He studied at the San Francisco School of design with Virgil Williams and Emil Carlsen before heading to Paris to study at the acclaimed Academie Julian.

He was strongly influenced by French Impressionist artists, especially Claude Monet, and worked in the classic impressionist style, with bold, vivid colors and loose brushstrokes.
