In 2013 we celebrate our tenth anniversary. This is a testament to the enduring majesty of the artwork created in California during the Modern period, i.e. 1910 – 1950. We are grateful to our clients and all others who have supported us in various ways throughout the years. The legacy of the art of the Modern period in California lives on through Spencer Helfen Fine Arts where a collector can find unique and historically significant paintings, sculpture and works on paper that all speak to the story of California and its fine arts.
In California Modernism 1910 – 1950, we feature some of the best in California Modernism, including works by Victor Arnautoff, Margaret Bruton, Ralph Chessé, Nils Gren, Jose Moya del Pino, Knud Merrild, Helen Clark Oldfield, Otis Oldfield, Marion Randall Parsons, Nina Saemundsson, Rex Slinkard, Wilna Splivalo, Maurice Sterne, Henry Sugimoto, Lucretia Van Horn, Bernard Zakheim, and many others.
We hope you will enjoy these and other works in our exhibition. The exhibition as a whole includes oil paintings, watercolors, mixed-media works, sculpture, drawings and prints.
