From the Introduction by Ted De Grazia: "After almost a year of research on the life of Junipero Serra I was ready to do a series of paintings. I am the sort of painter who must become involved with my subject. To know it, feel it and to understand it before I can truthfully sketch or paint it. At this point I was saturated. I must paint without interruptions and be completely alone for whatever time is necessary to finish this series of paintings on the last fifteen years of Fray Serra's life which he spent among the Indians of California; a story told in my own personal way, in my own personal style. I had read and researched Serra from the day he was born in 1713 on the Spanish Island of Majorca - I had followed him across the Atlantic to Mexico City to San Blas and Lower California - until he came to Velicata, 270 miles south of San Diego. I paused at Velicata for a while for that is where my story of Serra begins. Because I don't like political involvements and because Serra didn't either, I have left political embroilments out of my paintings. Politicians are uncolorful and unpalatable, anyway. I preferred to paint the true colonizers of California and its Indians. I wanted to paint these eighteenth century frontiersmen as I thought they were: brave, despairing, devout, frightened. and weak from hunger and scurvy. But in all of these experiences of the first missions of Upper California I have always remembered how great Fray Serra was; it was Fray Serra who had enough faith to see him through epidemics, wilderness, hardships and Indian massacres to found the chain of missions that began the California of today...."
