Known as "Gus" Gay, he was part of the Society of Six, a group in the Bay Area of California in the 1920s led by Selden Gile that espoused a new style of painting focused on bright colors and impressionist techniques.  It was a rebellion against the prevalent sombre tonalism and decorative aesthetics of William Keith and Arthur Mathews.

Painter, watercolorist and printmaker, Frances Hammell Gearhart was born in 1869 in Henderson County, Illinois. Color wood block prints were a specialty.
