There was an article in the Union Tribune today about all of the local hotels that are shutting down due to Covid -19. The beautiful Lodge at Torrey Pines is not one of them. I have no comment on that, either way, but I wanted to point your attention to the large painting in back and right of the bellman.
If I remember correctly, the large canvas was painted in 1883. How do I know? Because I sold the painting to the Lodge over twenty years ago.
I purchased it originally from the late "Kirk" Kirking, an antique dealer from La Jolla with a large following who later moved to Fallbrook. I in turn sold it to Bill Evans.
Heath was a student of Virgil Williams and Raymond Dabb Yelland at the San Francisco School of Design. Goldfish Point is an area located east of the La Jolla Cove. San Diego was a relative sleepy backwater until 1878 when the railroad finally came through and so this large and magnificent oil painting is a quite early rarity. And a rarity at the lodge as well, I believe the bulk of the artworks on the walls there are plein air style reproductions.
I never forget a painting.
