Why We Love This

A rare and period watercolor view of Monterey, signed lower right, 'Alta Duarte' (American, 1900-1969), titled Presidio and dated 1957. Duarte was a member of one of California's pioneering families, her great-grandfather having been one of the first Spanish governors. She began her art studies at the age of 14 under Armin Hansen and Frank Van Sloun. A member of the Carmel Art Association and the Artist's Guild of America, she exhibited widely and with much success. Unframed.

About McNaught Fine Art

A 1986 graduate of Christie's Fine Arts of London, I headed the fine art department of a West Coast auction house before opening my own gallery. Each painting I represent is selected with care. I believe fine art to be an integral part of life, illuminating both our vision and our values for our children. As time passes, our paintings become heirlooms, enriched with our shared memories. Many things come and go. Art abides. - Anthony McNaught
