Mission San Gabriel Arcángel/Gallery
(PD) Painting: Ferdinand Deppe
Mission San Gabriel Arcángel in 1832. In the foreground Native Americans (who frequently camped near trading centers such as military forts and missions) live in brush huts, with the Mission in the middle ground, and the San Gabriel Mountains as a backdrop. The work is believed to be the earliest known oil landscape of Southern California.
