Marius Dahlgren (1844-1920) Alameda County Courthouse, East Oakland, 1882 Oil on canvas The Oakland Museum Kahn Collection Painted from an earlier sketch. It is shown on a site near the estuary, the corner of East 14th Street and 20th Avenue, where the courthouse was briefly located between 1873 and 1875. The red brick building in the picture was then the County Jail, which after more than a hundred years was still in use as a kitchen for a multiple dwelling later erected on the site. Artist Marius Dahlgren, the bachelor brother of Carl, was a well-respected painter of many California landscapes and genre scenes.
