Dedrick Brandes Stuber is known for his California landscapes; seascapes, mountain landscapes, and desert scenes. Some of the examples of atmospheric tall willowy eucalyptus trees in a pastoral setting with a farm, or with a small town with a particular church at their bases or in the distance have been identified as around Elsinore in the 1920’s or thereabouts.  The featured painting is of this type. Several examples are known of tall ships sailing or in harbors, of deserts blooming and with billowing clouds, and of desert monuments glowing red from the sunset, and these probably date from earlier periods.  The more urban (or suburban) scenes of complex brushwork skillfully suggesting forms of homes and their yards, probably in and around Los Angeles (some identified as his own yard or neighborhood), are particularly prized by collectors. The bright colors of his skies and forms of his clouds are distinctive as well as certain other characteristics of specific types of his works.  The moonlit and sunbeams scenes are also popular and are well represented currently in the major galleries of Early California Art.

He was born in New York, and attended the Art Students League.  He studied with Bridgman (Charles J.), Julian Onderdonck, and Clinton Peters, and was influenced by Barbizon painters Camille Corot and Charles Francois Daubigny.  He moved to California in 1920, but there is evidence that he had made an earlier trip, because there is a 1915 painting called "Silver Mining" in a private collection. He also painted in Arizona. He preferred painting plein air at sunrise, when it was cool and shady. His work resides in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., the Pasadena Art Museum, The Fleischer Museum of Scottsdale, Arizona, and the Irvine Museum.  His work is associated with the following galleries:  Wilshire Galleries, Barker Brothers, Newhouse Galleries.  He was a member of the Laguna Beach Art Association, the Glendale Art Association, the Painters and Sculptors of Southern California, and the Painters and Sculptors Club.
