Description:
Lot# 048 Thomas Hill (1829-1908 San Francisco, CA) Empire Mine, mining road along a steep mountainside, oil on canvas laid to panel, 32'' H x 51'' W, signed and dated lower left: T. Hill 1886. Note: The Empire Mine is the site of the oldest, largest, and richest gold mine in California. From 1850 to its closing 106 years later in 1956, it produced 5.8 million ounces of gold. Some of the most productive years were under the direction of California State Senator Thomas Fowler of Visalia who purchased the mine in 1878 and formed the Empire Gold and Silver Mining Company. Fowler oversaw an intense period of construction of the mine and poured most of his personal fortune into the endeavor. A 2 mile cable tram was built to carry ore down from Empire Mountain to a new mill 2,000 feet below; ''[i]n the Spring of 1879, Fowler organized the Mineral King Wagon and Toll Road Company to complete the remaining 25 miles of road from the bridge across the East Fork of the Kaweah River...to Mineral King'' (J.G. Moore, ''Exploring the Highest Sierra'', Stanford, CA, p. 268). By August 15, 1879, wagons entered the Mineral King Valley for the first time. Just a few years later in 1886, Thomas Hill was there to paint the present work. Hill had begun painting Yosemite and Sierra landscapes in the 1860s and his paintings of these subjects were hugely popular and commanded high prices by the 1880s. The present work shows the entrance to Empire Mine cut into the side of a steep mountain at the left of a sweeping mountainscape painted in the artist's signature naturalistic tones. Provenance: Estate, Las Vegas, NV. Condition: Visual: Generally good condition. Areas of paint shrinkage in some of the brown pigments of the rocks and trees left center. A small fleck of paint loss upper center. Minor frame abrasion. The tacking edges were removed when lined. Blacklight: A 3.5'' x 5'' 'L'-shaped area of touch-up left center. Touch-up throughout the sky and mountains. Difficult to read under varnish.

Description:
Thomas Hill 1829 - 1908 | In the Gorge - Yosemite Signed l/r: T. Hill 1904 | Media: Oil on canvas | Dimensions: 36 by 54 inches Verso: Label for R. Love Galleries, Chicago IL. Thomas Hill, along with Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran and William Keith and other members of the Rocky Mountain school, discovered the West and began to portray its expansiveness. Born in England, he came to United States at an early age and settled in Massachusetts. He studied at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts and became a well-known still life and portrait artist. The major turning point in his career came about in 1861 when he moved to San Francisco and started painting mountainscapes, for which he became famous. He was principally known for his views of Yosemite; however, his most famous painting is Driving the Last Spike, which commemorated the completion of the first transcontinental railroad and now hangs in the state capitol in Sacramento. Among the prizes and honors Hill received were the First Medal of the Maryland Institute in Baltimore in 1853 and the First Prize at the San Francisco Art Union Exhibition. In 1888 he built a studio at Yosemite where he spent the remainder of his life.
