Oil on Board

About the Artist:
Born in England, Geoffrey Holt did realistic western landscape painting in both oil and watercolor.

He lived in Minneapolis during his youth and worked as an interior designer for John S Bradstreet Company.  By 1921, he was living in San Francisco and then in the 1930s, moved to Southern California.  He lived first in Los Angeles and then in Long Beach where he lived until his death in 1977.

His painting style has been described by Edan Hughes as realistic "in the manner of the English School."  Two of his California mission paintings, circa 1910, are in the collection of the Society of California Pioneers, and a Grand Canyon landscape is in the Santa Fe Railway Collection.
