This print is signed in pencil mount recto and stamped mount verso. The Pacific Coast Highway sweeps along the continent’s edge, abutted by mountains and sea. No other image defines this emblem of California like Henry Gilpin’s magnum opus Highway 1. The afternoon sun silhouettes the Santa Lucia range of Big Sur, highlighting the sea spray between each rocky outcrop. While this image is a distillation of reality, it contains the essential feeling one gets from sailing down Highway 1 on a bright day, above the ocean’s booming surf.
