Situ is a master at capturing the experience of the brave immigrants who built the American West. With rich and dramatic use of color, his paintings are snapshots of history in the making. “Gold was found in considerable quantities in the newly erected saw mill of Captain Sutter on
the American River Fork. This report was the start of the rumors radiating outward from the Sierras that initiated the Gold Rush of 1849. This news also brought the first wave of Chinese immigrants to the United States,” says Situ, who has preserved an epic point in history that defined America’s West.
