Raymond Rowley King – T through Z

These pages attempt to catalog the oeuvre of the brilliant artist Raymond Rowley King, arranged in alphabetical order by title.  They are ranged over five pages to make them easier to load quickly.   On this page are items T through Z.   As additional works are submitted to me, I will attempt to add them.  A reasonably good image is required for publication.  If the collector wants to have the owner’s name mentioned, please include that information.  At present, I have images of just over 100 of the works of Raymond Rowley King.  Some times his name is spelled Raymond Rouley King incorrectly.  Whenever possible, i prefer to include the title of the work as well as the dimensions .. and whether or not the work is being offered for sale, and, if so, please suggest a  price.  In that regard, the location of the artwork is an important factor.  At present, emails may be sent to collectedartworks@hotmail.com . You may also call me at (916)383-5341.

             View of San Francisco Victorians

The title is just a guess. This painting is said to be a view of a city, presumably San Francisco, from a prison. That may be so, however, King was incarcerated at Vacaville Medical Facility in Vacaville, California prior to his flight to Israel. The only hill anywhere near that prison is Cement Hill in neighboring Fairfield. There are no Victorian houses on Cement Hill … only cows, and the remains of the once-thriving city called Cement. In its day, Cement had a complete cement manufacturing plant that was constructed down the side of Cement Hill so that, once the local supply of limestone and clay was brought to the top of the hill, the process of turning those minerals in to cement proceeded down the hill, with the final product loaded at the level of the delta. Cement was a complete city unto itself with a housing for the workers and their families, schools for their children, a hotel, a general store, a bar, and a whorehouse. If there were any Victorian era houses there, they were long ago torn down along with the rest of the plant after it closed in the late 1890s. The local supply of limestone had run out. The plant was briefly re-opened in the early years of the 20th Century using limestone trucked in from El Dorado county, but this proved to be too costly.

This particular painting measure a little over 42 inches square and was in Tel-Aviv several years ago, hence it was not likely to have been painted after his return to the United States and subsequent incarceration oat San Quentin.

The stairs in the foreground are reminiscent of stairs leading down to a beach.  They could also be stairs leading up to home.
