William Keith – Artist

I found the following article when I was doing the research for my post on the Hays Canyon Murder and another I am working on. I immediately went searching for the paintings, and I found photos of them. Absolutely beautiful. Sharing what I found. The first painting is somewhere in the hills above Piedmont.

Oakland Tribune Feb 24, 1886

The artist William Keith spent some time in Piedmont Hills painting the following.

  1. Great article. Thank you.
    I have the top painting, landscape, in our house.
    Do you know if these are the only paintings Keith did of the Worcester house?
