BIOGRAPHY FOR JOHN MARSHALL GAMBLE (1863 - 1957)
California landscape Impressionist painter John Marshall Gamble never did any commercial paintings throughout his entire career. He worked as a color consultant, and relied on the funds from his paintings to make a living.
John Marshall Gamble's formal education in art began while his family was in San Francisco during the early years of his life. After his father was relocated to Auckland, New Zealand, young Gamble immediately re-entered the San Francisco School of Design upon his return in 1883. After this period of training he moved on to the Academie Julian in Paris where he studied and painted under Jean Paul Laurens and Benjamin Constant, before heading back to San Francisco where he opened his own studio.
The catastrophic earthquake that leveled the city, and burned much of what remained, dashed John Marshall Gamble's hopes of remaining in the area. Gamble packed up what remained of his belongings and headed to Los Angeles to start anew, but on his way south he was overwhelmed by the scenic beauty of the Santa Barbara, California area and decided to stay there.
John Marshall Gamble's paintings of the area depicted the springtime displays of wildflowers that populate the region's surrounding hills and fields. Brilliant collections of golden poppies and blue lupine, nestled in clumps and patterns on the rolling countryside captivated viewers, and are the hallmarks of a Gamble canvas.
During the life of John Marshall Gamble in Santa Barbara, California, he worked as a color consultant for the Santa Barbara Board of Architectural Review and continued with his painting. He painted a landscape on the stage curtains of the Fox Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara and won the Gold Medal Award at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, Seattle 1909.
