A mainstay of the Northern California art scene, Roy De Forest (1930–2007) grew up in Nebraska, Colorado, and Washington. He studied at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute) and San Francisco State College (now San Francisco State University), and, from 1965 to 1992, taught at the University of California, Davis. Characterized by hallucinatory, dream-like imagery, De Forest’s vast array of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures are filled with color and colorful creatures, most notably dogs.
