Original, vintage August Gay, Society of Six plain air post-impressionist painting of a Cypress near the coast; possibly in the Monterey region.

August Gay, (1890-1949), (aka Auguste Francois Pierre Gay); was born in Rabou, France in 1890. He immigrated to the U.S. with his family in 1900 settling in Alameda, California around 1901. Gay attended classes locally at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco, and the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. Together with Selden Gile, Gay formed the “Society of Six” painting group, a loosely knit band of painters who shared expenses, ideas, and an appreciation of Fauvist color sensibilities. (Selden Gile, August Gay, Bernard Von Eichmann, Louis Siegriest, and William Clapp).
