About Charles Sexton James
Charles was the manager of Gump's department store in San Francisco.
13 Carol Wilson, Gump's Treasure Trade, New York: Thomas Crowell, 1965, p. 150. In an unpublished 1957 essay, Charles Sexton James claimed that A.L. Gump "commissioned Sparks" to paint "thirty-two missions in sizes that would go together as a set." All of the paintings were sixteen vertical inches and between twenty to twenty-six horizontal inches. James noted that Sparks painted a second set for Albert George Haskell that depicted similar views, but which were generally smaller and irregular in size.
