Resource: Edan Hughes
Contact Edan Hughes-He may have one of your Grandfather's paintings or may assist you in finding more paintings. Not to mention he is not only an authority on Artists in CA he also does appraisals on the collection you may already have.
If you don't have a copy of your grandfather's book, "El Camino Real," easily found if you google it. Another option; "Artists in CA 1786 to 1940," by Edan Hughes. Again, Google this book title. Book review: "The monumental two-volume 1,250 page third edition contains 20,000 detailed biographies of artists who were active in California through 1940, thousands more artists than the second, and is unquestionably the finest reference of its kind ever written. Hughes stopped at nothing to obtain accurate artist information using books, newspaper and magazine articles, old art catalogues and gallery notices, death certificates, personal interviews with artists and artist descendants, and whatever other resources he could get his hands on."
Good luck with your search.

My mother has recently died leaving many letters and documents from her father's estate. There are some painings and I am interested in finding the whereabouts of any additional paintings of my grandfather. If anyone knows of additional paintings please contact me at the above email address.
