Louis Macouillard (California, 1913-1987) small acrylic on board or paper painting of San Francisco with the sun rising or setting over the Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge visible in the background and the Marin Hills rising in the distance. Signed lower right. Kerwin Galleries, Burlington, CA labels affixed to backing. Housed under glass in a speckled giltwood frame with ivory mat and grey reveal. Sight: 4" H x 5 1/4" W. Frame: 9 1/4" H x 11 3/16" W. Biographical Note: Macouillard was born in San Francisco and graduated from Polytechnic High School and the California College of Arts and Crafts followed by further study at the Art Students League in New York. Returning to his native city, he became art director for the Velvetone Poster Company and maintained a studio on Hotaling Place. He began painting mostly watercolor scenes of San Francisco during the 1930s. During WWII he served in the Navy in the South Pacific and produced many artworks of that area which were featured in a six-page spread and cover of the October 1943 issue of Life magazine. As well as fine art, his work includes book illustrations and the designs of two U.S. postage stamps (Daniel Boone & San Antonio).
