Description

Redman Dorgeloh’s work features San Francisco landmarks or the coastal landscapes of the San Francisco Bay Area. This lithograph is a very detailed portrait of the mansion of Michael H. de Young who co-founded the daily Dramatic Chronicle newspaper in 1865 with his brother, which was the predecessor of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The de Young Fine Arts Museum was named in his honor after he donated $200,000 for the project. The de Young mansion was designed by Benjamin McDougal & Sons and was featured in 1878 in Artistic Homes of California. It was located at 1919 California Street and survived a fire in 1903 which heavily damaged the theater which adjoined the mansion but was completely demolished in the 1940s.
