WILLIAM LEES JUDSON Antique 19c Original Painting California Landscape Horses
Original Antique Watercolor Painting on Paper. Shows a depiction of a Southern California landscape, with people riding on horseback near a pond. Estimated Age: Circa Late 1800’s – Early 1900’s. Approximate Size of Artwork is: 12.25″ x 19″. Framed size is approximately: 21.5″ x 28″. In my personal opinion, the condition of the painting is Very Good to Excellent (especially considering it’s age). The frame is in very good pre-owned condition. It’s a very nice looking, very good quality frame. William Lees Judson was born in 1842 in Manchester, England, and moved to the United States with his parents when he was ten years old. After serving four years with the Illinois volunteers during the American Civil War, Judson studied art in New York and Paris. He settled in London, Ontario, where he became a successful portrait painter and art teacher. He moved to Chicago in 1890 but, suffering from failing health, he moved to Los Angeles in 1893. He settled on the banks of the Arroyo Seco in the Garvanza section of Los Angeles. A 1937 radio program noted that it was “love at first sight” when Judson saw the Arroyo Seco, and the area became his home for the rest of his life. Soon after his arrival, Judson was at the forefront of the Arroyo Guild of Craftsmen, an influential group of artists, sculptors and architects who fueled Southern California’s Arts and Crafts Movement. The beauty of the area stirred Judson to switch from portrait painting to landscapes, and his work attracted such favorable attention that in 1896 he was offered a professorship in drawing and painting at the University of Southern California. In the late 1890s, he founded the Los Angeles College of Fine Arts at his home in Garvanza (the present location of Judson Studios). In 1901, Judson’s art college became USC’s College of Fine Arts, with Judson serving as dean from 1901 until his retirement in 1922. He died at his home in the studio building in October 1928.
