John Marshall Gamble

Biography

John Marshall Gamble was born in New Jersey but studied art in San Francisco and later Paris, where he was influenced by the work of Claude Monet. Upon returning from France the artist set up a studio in San Francisco but relocated to Santa Barbara following the 1906 earthquake. Inspired by the local landscape, Gamble's work became increasingly vibrant and the artist began to gain recognition for his iconic paintings of California wildflowers, even earning the unofficial title of ''Dean of Santa Barbara artists.'' He achieved great professional success during his lifetime, exhibiting at the Louisiana Purchase Universal Exhibition in St. Louis in 1904 and working on large-scale commissions such as a mural for the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.
