Description Leland Curtis is widely admired and celebrated for his desert and mountain landscape scenes. Today we present this small work that was executed using gouache, a type of opaque paint that is slightly heavier and less transparent than watercolor.

Curtis was born in Denver in 1897 and lived in Seattle prior to moving to Los Angeles in 1914. He was the official artist for multiple U.S. Antarctic Expeditions between 1939 and 1957, and moved in 1960 to Twenty Nine Palms, California. He spent many summers in Moose, Wyoming where he had a studio in a rustic log cabin. He was an avid hiker and mountain climber, and these small-scale works reflect the artist's obvious love and respect for nature and his deep appreciation of the magnificent panoramic views.

His paintings have been exhibited by many well respected museums and clubs, including the National Academy of Design in New York, the Laguna Beach Art Association, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.
