Bertha Stringer Lee, American, (1869–1937)

Carmel Beach

Oil on board
27 x 40 in. (68.58 x 101.6 cm)
A Gift from the Collection of Alva A. Christensen and Helen B. Christensen
Accession Number: 2000.039

Born in San Francisco to well-to-do parents, Bertha Stringer Lee studied art with both William Keith and Arthur Mathews, both of whom were already distinguished California artists. She maintained a studio in her Pacific Heights home where she entertained her socialite and artist friends, often giving them gifts of her paintings. She particularly enjoyed visits to the Monterey Peninsula where the beaches gave her hours of inspiration. This painting of dunes and pines is divided equally between earth and sky. The dune vegetation creeps along the sand, leaving us a path to walk toward the sea. Sunlight flickers on the tree trunks. It's a lovely peaceful Carmel day.
