Fanny and Robert Louis Stevenson spent their honeymoon roughing it for two months in an abandoned mining camp near Calistoga in the Mayacamas Mountains above the Napa Valley in northern California.

The two-month idyll was the basis for Stevenson’s 1893 The Silverado Squatters and may well have been the occasion for these two watercolors by his new wife.

Ethel A. Baird; by bequest to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1985.
