Biography   Charles Rutherford


Born in Tomales, CA on Nov. 4, 1868.  Artistically inclined from an early age, Rutherford studied locally with Chris Jorgensen.  At age 19 he received recognition from the German Kaiser for one of his paintings.  He was active in the San Francisco art scene from 1879 while living in Mill Valley. He made many painting excursions throughout Marin and Sonoma counties.  His portrait of Peter Lassen was used to illustrate a book called King Ship of Mount Lassen (author:  Mrs. Fred H. Colburn, 1922).  Although he was known to have painted landscapes and portraits, he specialized in still lifes of grapes, many of which were done at the Moulton Hill Vineyard near Cloverdale.  He died in Mill Valley on Jan. 11, 194
