The Figure in California Modernism

Figurative art has been a mainstay for artists throughout the ages. But California Modernist interpretations of the figure during the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s brought a new boldness of color, composition and sensuality to the genre. We are pleased to present an extensive survey of interpretations of the figure by some of California's foremost Modernists.

Featured are important paintings and sculpture by Mabel Alvarez, Victor Arnautoff, Franz Bergmann, Brents Carlton, Boris Deutsch, Ralph Chessé, Francis de Erdely, Ross Dickinson, Lorser Feitelson, John Emmett Gerrity, Robert Gilbert, John Langley Howard, Boris Lovet-Lorski, Helen Clark Oldfield, Otis Oldfield, Sueo Serisawa, Benjamin Vaganov, Frede Vidar, Bernard Zakheim, and others.

A color brochure of the exhibition is available upon request.

The artists featured in this exhibition include:

California Modernist Works on Paper

As much as the painters in oil expanded the frontiers of Modernism in California, so too did those artists who worked in other media. This exhibition focuses exclusively on works on paper by important and lesser-known California Modernists working in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s.

The exhibition features watercolors, graphite and charcoal drawings, linoleum block prints, woodcuts, serigraphs, lithographs, and works in other media on paper.

We are pleased to offer artwork for both the beginning and advanced collector.

A color brochure of the exhibition is available upon request.

The California Modernist Still Life

This exhibition is an important survey of the California Modernist approach to the still life during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. The still life is a hallowed theme for artists. We are pleased to provide a rare glimpse into the methods and styles implemented by California artists to achieve and expand upon the Modernist still life genre. The exhibition includes important women Modernists who, though often overlooked in their own time, were at the forefront of Modernism in California.

Artists working in Southern California during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s produced outstanding and iconoclastic paintings. This exhibition highlights five exceptional artists whose styles, themes and approaches to their subjects differed greatly and help to underscore the diversity of artistic expression and experimentation in this critical period in the history of California art. This exhibition will evoke emotion, inspire and educate the viewer. The accomplished and highly regarded Modernists that have been selected for this exhibition each are represented in many museum collections.
