Edgar Payne ventured into the Sierra Nevada mountains for the first time around 1917. It was a cataclysmic moment for the painter, who had already witnessed and painted the Swiss Alps, Venice’s canals and the California Coast. So momentous was that early trip that Payne would revisit the Sierras regularly for the rest of his life, including on many long and arduous trips deep into the country. One newspaper noted in 1921, “His chafed feet are bleeding and his brain reels, but he perseveres for he is a true artist.”
