Mission San Gabriel

The earliest known oil painting of a California mission is this idealized scene of Catholic faith and pastoral life at Mission San Gabriel by German naturalist Ferdinand Deppe. In the distance are adobe structures with red-tile roofs, which replaced the thatched huts of Serra's day. The painting is part of the Huntington exhibit, which continues through Jan. 6.
