Considered one of the early "California Impressionists," Carl Sammons is known for plein air landscapes that featured the flowering plants native to the coasts, mountains, and deserts of California. Sammons was born and raised in Kearney, Nebraska, where he learned the trade of sign painting. Sammons moved to Petaluma, California in 1913, but lived in various locations in northern California over the next several years, circa 1920, he enrolled at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute.) Sammons worked mostly in oil but also enjoyed painting with pastels. Most paintings were done en plein air and therefore tended to be in small formats. He used impressionist techniques, but his style was tighter and more carefully drawn than many of his colleagues. Pastel on paper. Signed lower right, circa 1930s.
