California Impressionists


In stock


“Text by Susan Landauer, with additional essays by Donald D. Keyes and Jean Stern. This book celebrates forty Impressionist painters who worked in California from 1900 through the beginning of the Great Depression. A joint effort of The Irvine Museum and the Georgia Museum of Art, it includes widely recognized California artists such as Maurice Braun and Guy Rose, less well known artists such as Mary DeNeale Morgan and Donna Schuster, and eastern painters who worked briefly in the region, such as Childe Hassam and William Merritt Chase.

The contributors’ essays examine the socioeconomic forces that shaped this art movement, as well as the ways in which the art reflected California’s self-cultivated image as a healthful, sun-splashed arcadia.”
