Cutting created several garden scenes and images of the California coast, but was primarily known for landscapes like this one. Mt. Sombroso is the highest mountain to the southeast of Los Gatos. Sombroso in Spanish means shadow; Los Gatos is in the shadow of this mountain. He never liked his name Francis, which is why he signed his name F. H. Cutting.
