Granville Redmond was deafened by scarlet fever as a toddler. Soon after, the family moved to California, and in 1879 he became a student at the California School for the Deaf in Berkeley. He would go on to graduate and study at the California School of Design in San Francisco and the Académie Julian in France. After more than four years in France, he returned to California and settled in Los Angeles. Although he was saddened to leave France, Redmond was inspired by the beauty of the California landscape. Many of his paintings were subdued, depicting land and sea at twilight or under softening veils of mist. Poppy paintings, however, were his most popular works. In this painting, he manages to include bright poppies in a tonal setting. Many of Redmond’s colleagues felt that these introspective, tonal paintings elicited a sense of quietude informed both by his deafness and his contemplative nature. Granville Redmond, “Patch of Poppies”, 1912 Oil on canvas, 26 x 36 in. Crocker Art Museum, Melza and Ted Barr Collection.
