“A painter of California, one of the very few native-born, we have in Sydney Yard, who, from an early meticulous manner, developed a broader and decorative delineation of the northern California landscape. His medium was watercolor, and his sincerely studied and finely patterned small canvases are distributed through many California homes. His work is charming without being weak.” (The History & Ideals of American Art by Eugen Neuhaus, 1931).
