Xavier Martinez (1869-1943)

Xavier Martinez moved to San Francisco from his native Mexico in 1893 when his step-father was made Consul-General. Martinez continued his art studies, begun in Mexico at the School of Design where he was taught by Arthur Mathews. Martinez excelled and was awarded a scholarship to study in Paris. Martinez returned to California in 1901, and soon after co-founded Monterey’s Del Monte Art Gallery with William Keith and Charles Rollo Peters. When he lost his studio in the 1906 earthquake and the ensuing fire, Martinez moved across the bay to Piedmont and taught at the California College of Arts and Crafts from 1909-1942. The hills around his home in Piedmont were a major source of subject matter for Martinez’ tonal atmospheric works.
