William P. Silva, American, (1859–1948)

Flowers, Salinas Road

Oil on canvas board
8 x 10 in. (20.32 x 25.4 cm)
Bequest of Mr. and Mrs. Roland William Scheffler
Accession Number: 1998.096

Inspired by the plein air paintings of the French Impressionists, Silva often worked outdoors to capture the bright sun-drenched colors of the California landscape. This painting on the road to Salinas uses lively broad brushwork to capture the natural energy of the blooms. Our eye is drawn to the tiny brick red roofs in the background which stand out from the cool blues and greens.
