Thomas McGlynn (1878-1966)
Thomas McGlynn was born in San Francisco in 1878 and enrolled at the Mark Hopkins Institute at the age of 21, beginning what would be a long association with that school’s director, Arthur Mathews, whose furniture shop McGlynn would eventually run for many years.
Thomas McGlynn moved to Pebble Beach in 1938 and devoted himself to his paintings. He’s best remembered for what’s known as his lyrical impressionism and delicately rendered atmospheric coastal and forest scenes of the Monterey Peninsula. Thomas McGlynn died in at his home in Pebble Beach in 1966.
