Pacific Carriage Co., San Francisco, 1905
by Mian Situ
“The Pacific Carriage Company was the predominant
carriage company operating out of San Francisco during
the early 1900s,” says artist Mian Situ. “Their carriages
provided luxury transportation throughout the city. The bowler-topped Irish hack-man has given this Chinese
mother, daughter and young ones permission to inspect
the carriage while he awaits his wealthy passengers.” Mian Situ’s lush oil paintings, evocative snapshots of world history, gather more and more acclaim with every passing month. At the 2008 Coeur d’Alene Art Auction this past July, the original painting of Pacific Carriage Co., San Francisco, 1905 sold for an astonishing $225,000, shattering the high end of its expected auction price. There is still time to become an early collector of Mian Situ’s art, but it won’t be long before his work is as unattainable as that of Howard Terpning himself.
