Of Magic and Mood:  The Paintings of Nils Gren, 1932 - 1939

The work of Nils Gren, though representational, is as much about shape, texture, color, and shading as it is about the countryside, the towns, or the people and objects that inhabit his paintings. A 1940 exhibition of Gren’s paintings (the year Gren died) at the San Francisco Museum of Art prompted these comments from San Francisco Chronicle critic Alfred Frankenstein: “Mr. Gren’s best pictures are fantastic, moody, imaginative landscapes in oil, with the looping rhythms characteristic of his approach.” This exhibition will include oil paintings, watercolors and graphite drawings.

Jacques Schnier, Master of the Art Deco Aesthetic:  Sculpture and Works on Paper from 1927 - 1946

Jacques Schnier’s sculptures and works on paper emphasized form, and incorporated rhythmic design and a purity of line, setting a standard for the Art Deco aesthetic. He became known as one of America’s most creative Modernists, and one of the nation’s finest direct carvers. We are pleased to present sculptures, ink wash and graphite drawings by this Art Deco master.

California Women Modernists At the Forefront of American Modernism

This exhibition constitutes one of the most extensive and important surveys of art by California Women Modernists since the seminal 1995 museum exhibition: Independent Spirits - Women Painters of the American West, 1890 - 1945. We are proud to present this exhilarating array of work by some of California's foremost artists working in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

From the environs of the San Francisco Bay Area, to Los Angeles and San Diego, over 30 artists are included in this compendium. The exhibition includes oil paintings, watercolors, graphite drawings, wood block prints, lithographs and sculpture.

Please visit the Gallery and experience the artistry of the women who, despite all obstacles, devoted much of their creative energies to producing wonderful Modernist works of art.

A color brochure of the exhibition is available upon request.

We are pleased to present a survey of works from 1920 to 1950 by John Emmett Gerrity (1895 - 1980) in our new Back Room Gallery. Gerrity was the San Francisco Bay Area’s foremost proponent of Synchromism, the color theory developed by Stanton Macdonald Wright and Morgan Russell.
