Edwin Deakin (May 21, 1838 – May 11, 1923) was a British-American artist best known for his romantic landscapes as well as his architectural studies, especially the Spanish colonial missions of California. His still lifes are considered to be some of the finest of the genre. Deakin is one of the artists who popularized scenes of San Francisco's Chinatown.

Introduction In 2014, the Santa Barbara Mission Archive-Library launched a fundraising campaign to conserve a series of paintings of the California missions by the prolific British-US artist Edwin Deakin (1838–1923). The paintings, one for each of the twenty-one Franciscan missions established by Spanish authorities in Alta California from 1769 to 1823, were privately donated to Mission Santa Barbara (fig.

The paintings of Edwin Deakin--beautiful, romantic depictions of California's early architecture, particularly its missions, as well as picturesque and nostalgic scenes of California wilderness--are regarded as major achievements in early California art. Deakin's trip to Europe in 1877 also inspired breathtaking canvases, notably of Notre Dame in Paris and the Castle of Chillon on Lake Geneva. Later in Deakin's career, his brush captured the uniqueness of San Francisco's Chinatown and the destruction of the 1906 earthquake. Deakin (1838-1923) was equally gifted at still-life painting and produced magnificient compositions of fruits and flowers. Edwin Deakin: California Painter of the Picturesque is the first book to survey the artist's vast accomplishments, bringing together examples from all the genres in which he worked--including all twenty-one of his paintings of the California missions.

Born in Sheffield, England, Deakin first came to San Francisco in 1870. The next year he established a studio in the city and began exhibiting regularly. His later years were spent in Berkeley, where in 1890 he purchased a large tract of land and built a mission-style home. Today a street in Berkeley is named in his honor.

The Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California, developed this book in concert with an exhibition of the artist's paintings. Edwin Deakin has long been admired by aficionados of California art, but wider recognition of his accomplishments is overdue. This publication, with illuminating text by Alfred C. Harrison Jr., president of the The North Point Gallery, and Scott A. Shields, chief curator at the Crocker Art Museum, strives to further the painter's legacy as an important contributor to the canon of California--and American--art.

I fell in love with Edwin Deakin last week on a visit to Sacramento's Crocker Museum and just had to find a book about him. There aren't a lot of options on Amazon, but when I saw this one - with a section of one of Deakin's most famous paintings on the cover - I thought it would be perfect.

The book just arrived and I was so excited to open it. I'm so disappointed. The photos are dark and the detail - which is one of the things that I loved about his works - is difficult to see. I know the paintings are not dark; I just saw them in person. I really HATE giving bad reviews on books, but I own several art books and none of them translate the works as poorly as this one does.

I'm really sorry I bought this, and hope I can find another book about Deakin that has better photos of his amazingly textured works.

Beautiful illustrations. Well written, historically interesting text. I have read it through once, and will read it again as a reference. Good purchase for anyone interested in this kind of art or history.
