September 24, 1893 [LAT/SB]: “Mr. Brooks has fixed up the ancient Ocean King, which has furnished a subject for the artists for several years, and will take it from the present dry dock on the beach and use it as a fishing boat.”


August 1, 1914 [SBMP]: “G. C. Stanson of the San Francisco Chronicle art department is spending some time on Santa Cruz Island making sketches for use in his paper. He is enraptured with the natural beauties of the island, and has already secured some very fine bit of scenery for his easel. Mr. Stanson came over to the mainland from Pelican Bay yesterday, but he will return to the island for more material.”


June 30, 1915 [SBDI]: “Landscape and marine painters are finding Santa Cruz Island a source of inspiration for their creative efforts. This week there are three artists on the island. Edgar Payne left today on the Otter for Valdez Cave, and Karl Schmidt and Frederick Rhend are already there. Mr. Payne will stay a week, resting and doing landscape work.”


March 28, 1916 [SBDN]: “Robert W. DeForest, president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York, who is staying at Miramar, has been on a visit to the Channel Islands. He has been very much taken with the beauties of Santa Cruz Island, which promises to become the centering place of many noted artists as a result of the publicity which Mr. DeForest will give. He has found on the islands a new world for the artist to revel in, leaving beauties beyond compare, and the outlook is that some great names will yet be built from the work of putting on canvas the scenes of these islands. Mr. DeForest has been invited to address the art lovers in San Francisco in connection with the move to save the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts, which is one of the noted buildings of the recent Panama Pacific exposition.”


July 16, 1919 [SBMP]: “The launch Sea Wolf, Captain Ira K. Eaton at the helm, conducted a merry and enthusiastic party of sightseers from the Hotel Belvedere to Santa Cruz Island for an all day trip. After the cruise along the island coast and a trip into the famous Painted Cave, the visitors expressed amazement that the beauties of the romantic island were not more widely known. Among the party were tourists who have visited the wonder spots of the world, but they declared that never in their travels had they seen anything to equal the grandeur and coloring of the Painted Cave. So enamored of the scenery found there were Miss Lillian Genth and Miss A. B. Seigher, artists from the Genth Studio of New York City, that they remained at Eaton’s camp on Pelican Bay, where they expected to sketch for a couple of weeks… Sea Wolf steamed for the island at 7:30 yesterday morning, returning to the pier at 6:30 in the evening.”
