Biography from Edan Hughes Gallery:
WOODS, David Holmes (1830-1911).  Painter. Born in Ohio on January 30, 1830.  Woods made the overland trek to California with the Gold Rush.  In 1859 he was commissioned by Ansel Easton to paint the portrait of Black Hawk, a famous Irish racehorse which Easton had imported to his property in San Bruno (now the San Francisco Int’l Airport).  The Easton ranch, which was part of the Buri Buri land grant, became known as the Black Hawk Ranch in honor of the horse which was the first thoroughbred brought to California for the purpose of breeding and racing.  The ranch later moved to the foot of Mt Diablo in Contra Costa County and today is the posh community by that name.

Woods was the first teacher of James E. Stuart in the 1860s.  He was a resident of San Francisco (1867-95), Sacramento (1870), and Chico (1881-83).  During the 1890s he operated the Pacific Art Gallery at 28 Third Street in San Francisco where he worked as a portrait photographer as well as landscape and portrait painter.  Woods died in Sacramento, CA on Nov. 28, 1911.

Exhibited: California State Fair, 1881.

Works held: California Historical Society (carte de visite photographs).
