James Everett Stuart was a prolific painter of the west coast. His work is well-known for its moody, dramatic style, suggestive of the French Barbizon School. Born in Bangor, Maine in 1852, Stuart moved to California with his parents and settled at Rio Vista. Stuart helped found the legendary Bohemian Club of San Francisco in 1872 Among its members were well-known California artists and writers such as: William Keith, Arthur William Best, Giuseppi Leone Cadenasso, Thomas Hill, Granville Redmond Virgil Williams, Samuel Marsden Brookes and Jules Tavernier. The artists gathered regularly at the Russian River in Northern California for a summer encampment, a tradition continued by current Bohemian Club members. In 1879, after graduating from the California School of Design, Stuart settled in The Dalles, Oregon. Stuart later migrated to Portland, Oregon and became a leading member of the art scene there for several years. His name appears first in a list of the founding members of the Portland Art Club, preceding those of such fine painters as Cleveland Rockwell and Grafton Tyler Brown. By the early 20th century, Stuart was a highly successful and well-known painter. His paintings are currently in the collections of the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the California State Library in Sacramento, University of Southern California, Los Angeles County Museum and the White House.
