Edwin Deakin

Edwin Deakin (May 21, 1838 – May 11, 1923) was a British-American artiste best known for his warm landscapes as with ease as his architectural studies, especially the Spanish colonial missions of California. His still lifes are considered to be some of the finest of the genre. Deakin is one of the artists who popularized scenes of San Francisco's Chinatown. His pining and very publicized depictions of the deteriorating missions drew public attention to the necessity of restoring these historically important monuments.
