San Gorgonio from Beaumont
Staff Pick | Monthly Muse November 2020
San Gorgonio from Beaumont by Anna Hills reminds me of long, winding drives up to the mountains, the sight of our destination in the distance, and the expectation of an enjoyable time hiking and backpacking in nature. Even though over 90 years have passed since the artist made this painting, in many ways the view has changed very little. While houses, roads, and other aspects of our modern life have altered the landscape, the outline of the mountains and the round top of San Gorgonio, I imagine, would be recognizable to Anna Hills today.
