PAUL SAMPLE, Stockton

Paul Sample 1935-1936, Stockton

Notes: In this painting the viewer is given a birds-eye view of the inland port of Stockton, California. The straightforward realism of the piece contrasts with the more lyrical paintings of Sample’s later work. The sharp angle of the terminal’s dock draws the viewer into the composition, along the broad canals dotted with cargo ships transporting goods from the agricultural hub of California’s Central Valley. A patchwork of sun-washed farmland frames the flat blue water and the white clouds rising from the ships’ smokestacks further characterize the painting as a modern view of the California landscape, marked with economic activity.
