Back Room Gallery: Victor Arnautoff - Works on Paper, 1929 - 1955

This versatile artist, who routinely commented on social inequities in his Depression-era art, also experimented with Cubism and other early Modernist styles. Arnautoff was as facile in the use of watercolor, charcoal, ink and lithography techniques as he was with oil and mural painting. These striking and passionate works come from the Estate of the Artist.

Important California Modernist Paintings and Sculpture: Recent Acquisitions

We are pleased to present our most recent acquisitions of important California Modernist paintings and sculpture from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

From Depression-era Social Realism by Victor Arnautoff to the African American motifs of Ralph Chessé to the exploration of style by a young Danish immigrant, Knud Merrild, this selection of artworks is at once historically significant and provocative. Both Northern and Southern California Modernist trends are well represented. Rare sculptural work by Karoly Fulop, Jason Herron, Adaline Kent and Ralph Stackpole round out an exhibition that includes landscapes, portraits, still lifes, and other extraordinary artworks.

A color brochure of the exhibition is available upon request.
