A commercial artist and fine-art painter whose styles ranged from Impressionism, Fauvism to Mixed-Media Abstraction, Louis Siegriest had a long, distinguished career including association in the 1920s with a California Bay Area group called the Society of Six.  Members rebelled against the prevalent sombre Tonalism of William Keith and the genteel Classicism of Arthur Mathews.

He was born to a father who drove the first horse-drawn streetcars in Oakland and then made a fortun (showing 500 of 4552 characters).
