Horace Wolfe Duesbury 1851 - 1904

Horace Wolfe Duesbury was born in Sheffield, England on March 20th, 1851. About six months earlier California became a state. At age twenty-five, young Duesbury made the move to the young state of California and to San Francisco. He had a studio on Market Street where he painted portraits of the citizenry, and did some landscapes and still lifes. From 1879 - 1886, he lived in Portland, but returned to San Francisco and Alameda, California until he died of heart failure in 1904. His works have been displayed by the DeYoung Museum, the California Historical Society, and his portrait of Chief Justice August L. Rhodes of the California Supreme Court hangs in the San Jose Historical Museum.
