NEW Art Book will include Granville RedmondLes Fox
N.Y. Times bestselling authors Les and Sue Fox are doing research for a new book titled "The Art Buyers Handbook" to be published in 2011 or 2012. This book will feature stories of real people who bought valuable art at garage sales, flea markets, local auctions and estate sales. Did you know that a masterpiece by Joseph Decker ("Ripening Pears") was bought at a garage sale in 2001 for $5, and sold to the National Gallery Of Art in 2004...for $1,000,000? If you or someone you know has purchased a genuine painting by Granville Redmond for a fraction of its AskArt value , we would like to publish your story in our book. Your name will be kept confidential, unless you want us to publish it. The facts must be verified, and we will need photos of your painting (original oil or watercolor, not a print, lithograph or limited edition.) Thank you. Les Fox. West Highland Publishing / West Highland Art Auction Brokers.
Granville RedmonKay Montgomery
I am researching the life of Granville Redmon for a modtern project. Could anyone tell me if any of his three children were Deaf of hearing. I have not been able to find this information on the web. Thanks
Where are they now?albert carey
I used to own three Redmonds purchase 35 years ago from Poulsen Galleries in Pasadena.
I wonder where they are now? Who is enjoying them now?
1.) approx. 20" x 24" dark scene of oaks after a rain in Menlo Park
(greens, russet, browns)2.) approx. 10" x 11" sunset (greens and golds)
3.) a nocture of Portuguese Bend in So. Ca that is all dark blue but for a sliver of moonlight at the water's horizon
It would be fun to have followed their provenance.

Does anyone know where to look for info on Redmond watercolor works or marine works.
Early California ArtEllen Condie
Although I live in St. Louis, MO now, I am a native Angeleno as was my father and his father. I love the California plein air artists because it gives me a picture of what it was like to live in California in my father and grandfather's time. I love Granville Redmond, but I will probably never be able to afford one of his works. I do try to buy less well known artists, especially women, who painted the early California landscape. My father has a Guy Rose coastal that his aunt, Jesse Yarnell Kimball, gave him for his tenth birthday in 1924. I am sure he would rather have had something else at that age but it surely would not be worth the same money today. Jesse Kimball was an admirer of Guy Rose and purchased many of his works in those days. My dad studied cinematography at USC and did some newsreel work after WW II.
Granville RedmondLita Bissell
My father, Sidney Morgan Hill and his Aunt, Edna Purviance, (both approximately the same age, worked for Charlie Chaplin. My father, as a cameraman, and Edna as Chaplin's leading lady.
My dad received two paintings from 'Pop' Redmond, during this time. Over the years I learned many things about the studio and the folks who worked there.
Being a native Angeleno and a resident of Catalina Island for many years, I'm interested in sharing anecdotes, etc. with anyone interested in Redmond, Chaplin and his films, and the Calif. art scene of that time.
