The early California impressionist Franz Bischoff’s superb sense of color is on full display as he selects one of the most beautiful and inspirational views on the west coast for this memorable painting. Almost a decade later this same scenery was to become home to the most dramatic back-to-back par 3’s in golf, the remarkable 15th and the signature 16th of the legendary Cypress Point Club golf course made famous by Marion Hollins - golf's first female course developer.
