The Golden Twenties: Portraits and Figure Paintings by Joseph Kleitsch



Condition: Brand New

“The Golden Portraits and Figure Paintings by Joseph Kleitsch” is not only the first museum exhibition to focus on Kleitsch, but also one that “characterizes Southern California during this tumultuous decade through depictions of the people who helped shape it. Kleitsch moved to the artist’s haven in 1920. He quickly became a leading member of the art colony. He was involved with the Laguna Beach Art Association and was an in-house portraitist for the esteemed Stendahl Gallery, then located in the elegant Ambassador Hotel. The artist also pursued his newfound interest in landscape painting, becoming an important part of the California Impressionism movement.” PasadenaMuseum of Art
