Raymond Dabb decided as a young aspiring artist that the name Dabb was a demeaning name for a painter, and so he added his mother-€™s maiden name, Yelland. Although he lived in Oakland and maintained a S.F. studio at 430 Pine Street , Yelland had a summer home on the Monterey Peninsula where he painted numerous coastal scenes. Art historian Edan Hughes described his style as a fusion of American Luminism and the Hudson River School. In this painting the dark almost photorealistic foreground sharply contrasts with the atmospheric glow of the sky. The late afternoon sun from the west warms the rocks. The painting's focus is the wave bursting against the granite boulder and its reflection in the quiet tidepool.
