I have 3 Latimers, 2 watercolors and 1 oil
The watercolors: one is a hot roof in a forest of trees and the other is very fine stylied reduction of Mt Tam and the Bay; at a distance. The oil reminds me of a generous path for hikers and horse riders through Tilden Park.
I am holdinga Latimer watercolor of a creek and redwoods. It measures 10" x 14" and I believe it was of an area around Mill valley, Ca or other Northern ca area. It's dated 1905. I have some others also and I believe he always signed his name L P. Latimer with the date below his last name.
At least on the watercolors I have.
A painting I acquired out west that Latimer signed it is mountain scene. I was wondering if he signed with just his last name ?
The rocky outcrop could be the Berkeley Hills. He lived there arfter 1906. Do you have an image?
I have two Lorenzo Latimer paintings that have been hanging in my home for over 20 years. They were passed down to me through my great aunt,Lillian Borghi, a member of the Latimer Club (in Reno?)where she was a school teacher and good friend to many artists in the Northern Nevada area i.e. Genoa. I am curious about these two watercolors. One is of a redwood tree (dated 1927) and the other, a rocky precipice, that has its original backing on it and I am reluctant to disturb it at this point to check for a date. They both measure Approx. 8X12 and are in what seem to be original frames. Can someone tell me more about them?
Lone Mountain painting
I have been interested in knowing what ever happened to Latimer's painting titled 'Lone Mountain' (first exhibited at Bohemian Club in 1904)... any information will be most appreciated! thank you
