Lester Boronda (1886-1953)
Lester Boronda was raised in Salinas by a pioneering early California family. Boronda’s great-grandfather was a member of Junipero Serra’s second expedition in 1770. His art training was extensive, having studied at the Mark Hopkins Institute in San Francisco, the Art Student’s League in New York, as well as at academies in Paris and Munich.
Boronda was a regular exhibitor at the Del Monte Art Gallery in Monterey prior to moving to New York in 1913, where he established a craftsman center. While in Monterey, Lester Boronda often focused on the romantic Spanish colonial architecture of the area. Boronda remained active in New York until his death in 1953.
