His painting is on display in the Adobe. The Andres Pico Adobe was built in 1834 and it was owned by General Andres Pico. It is the second oldest adobe home in the City of Los Angeles. It was fully restored to its original condition in 1930 and is now the home of the San Fernando Valley Historical Society."
