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.
