A California Story

Gounod's Backstory.

  • European Beginnings

    Gounod's father Dionys Heberling was born in #### ####, becoming a popular musician in the 1880s with his Hungarian Orchestra. At some point he became a favorite musician for Queen Maria of Romania. The queen honored him by changing his family name to de Romandy, or "violinist of the gypsies."

  • Gounod's California

    In 1893 under the sponsorship of theater promoter #####, de Romandy, his band, and wife Emma left Europe for the golden shores of California. Romandy's Hungarian Band entertained at the famous music theaters of the time, traveling throughout the west and California from San Fracisco to San Diego.

  • 1893 a Momentous Year

    It was in the momentous year of 1893 that Romandy's gypsies played the Edgewater Inn, Colorado Springs, Colorado, performed at the World's Fair in Chicago, and finally settled down for a three-month gig at the Del Coronado Hotel in San Diego. That summer baby Gounod was born on the hotel grounds.

About

Museum-grade art from California's Golden Age.

  • Childhood

    An accomplished violinist as a child, Romandy built a legacy in both Early California painting and music. While playing at all the famous theaters throughout 1920's Los Angeles, Gounod took up impressionist painting under the tutelage of J. Bond Francisco.

  • Painting 1930's California

    California in the 1930’s was a land of natural beauty. From the roaring Pacific Coast to vibrant desert and Sierra mountains - this was Gounod Romandy’s palette. He played violin for Disney Studios for a decade while taking up impressionist painting, hanging out with the likes of Jack Wilkinson Smith, Paul Grimm, and Edgar Payne.

  • From Gounod's Originals to Your Wall

    Gounod’s sudden passing in 1942 left virtually all his paintings in family hands, unseen by the art world until now. We use museum-grade print processes that take a high-resoltion scan of the original painting, recreating every brush stroke and color.
