Albert DeRome (1885-1959)

 

Albert Thomas DeRome was born in Cayucos, California, in 1885.  DeRome studied formally with Arthur Mathews and Lorenzo Latimer at the Mark Hopkins Institute.  Early in his professional career, DeRome was well known as a political cartoonist for the San Jose Mercury News.

 

While out on a painting excursion in 1931, DeRome was critically injured in a head-on auto accident that ended his professional painting career.  Following an eight month hospital stay, DeRome reached an agreement with his insurance company stipulating that he could not earn his living as an artist.  This agreement did little to curtail his creativity, however, and DeRome continued to paint as his strength allowed, giving away and bartering with what he produced.  Between 1939 and 1947, DeRome won 6 Gold Medals at the Monterey County Fair.  While mostly small in scale, DeRome’s works are expertly composed snapshots of the Monterey and Carmel Coast, with Point Lobos and Pebble Beach being particular favorites of the artist.

 

After living for many years in Pacific Grove, Albert DeRome died in Carmel on July 31, 1959.
