Frank Morley Fletcher, California 2-Mount Shasta, 1932
Color woodcut on japanese paper, 11 5/16 x 16 in. (30.3 x 40.6 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. F.A. Lejeune, 1976.1.354
A few years after his arrival to teach at the Santa Barbara School of Art, Fletcher embarked on a series of color woodcuts featuring California landscapes. A naturalized citizen in 1926, he was eager to explore the artistic opportunities offered by the terrain of his new home. His image of Mount Shasta is perhaps the most iconic and Japanesque of the prints, albeit with an 'un-Japanese' central placement of the snowcapped mountain. It resembles Hokusai's Fuji in Clear Weather (Red Fuji), particularly in the delicate, graded printing of the mountain's conical form.
