Redwood Still Life
1953 Colored Pencil



Olof Dahlstrand

This monochromatic 1953 colored pencil redwood scene is by Olof Dahlstrand (1916-2014) who joined Carmel Art Association in 1984. Dahlstrand (1916-2014) received a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University in 1939. He is considered a canonical figure in the conception and execution of significant works of the golden age of California Modernism. As a fine artist, he drew and painted throughout his life and then continuously after he retired in 1984. Exhibition highlights include: Milwaukee Art Institute, San Francisco Museum of Art, and the Monterey Peninsula Museum of Art. He joined the Carmel Art Association in 1984. He was also a member of the Board of Trustees for Monterey Peninsula Museum of Art. An avid outdoorsman and explorer of rural California, much of his work skillfully captures the natural beauty of the West Coast with a stunning sense of realism and accuracy. Late in life he turned to abstraction, and his compositions reflect an architect’s interest in geometry and order.
