Notes: Fine (11" x 8 1/2") oblong 8vo staplebound art exhibit catalog in stiff wraparound pictorial wraps featuring the Manuel Valencia painting "Point Lobos (Land's End) with Dead Man's Rock" to cover, and the 1915 painting "Pastoral with Mt. Tamalpais in Distance" to frontis, no visible shelf wear, clean, tight binding, and unmarked throughout. 14 pp. including an essay and Introduction by Julie Armistead, a, early California family tree showing five generations descended from Manuel Valencia, and replete with full-color images of his early California paintings and illustrative work. Valencia, a descendant of Sonora's first Governor under Spanish rule, General Gabriel Valencia, was born in San Jose only six years after California became a state, worked as a commercial artist and illustrator in San Francisco for the San Francisco Chronicle and the War Cry newspaper. This catalog was published in conjunction with an exhibition of Valencia's work held at Saint Mary's College of California September 9 through October 15, 2006. A beautifully produced homage to one of California's most enduring artistic visionaries.
