Edward Holslag, the oldest of thirteen children born to immigrant parents, is best known as a muralist and an interior decorator. His commissioned murals, including ones painted for the Library of Congress in D.C. and a number of banks from coast to coast, provided a lucrative career. His oil paintings, such as this one, were his leisure pursuit. Although he never lived in California, Holslag visited often. Like countless others before and after, he was drawn to the magic of Pt. Lobos. What strikes us here is the precarious hold of the skeletal cypress on the steep cliff, and the restless water swirling below.
