Charles Chapel Judson (1864-1946) Dimond Canyon, Fruitvale, 1903 Oil on canvas Gift of Dr. and Mrs. James R. Allen This tranquil forest glade is Sausal Creek flowing down from the Oakland hills in Dimond Canyon where part of this area is now Dimond Park near Fruitvale Avenue. The word "sausal" refers to the willow trees that grew in the lowland areas where this stream spilled into San Antonio Creek, later dredged as part of Oakland Estuary. The artist Charles Chapel Judson was a landscape and marine painter who studied in Europe before settling in the San Francisco Bay Area. Instrumental in forming the Art Department at U.C. Berkeley, Judson was also head of that school from 1902 to 1923.
