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.
Featured are important paintings and sculpture by Mabel Alvarez, Richard Ayer, Claude Buck, Hans Burkhardt, Grace Clements, Edith Hamlin, Henry Lee McFee, John Mottram, Helen Clark Oldfield, Philip Paval, Lucy Pierce, Stanislaus Poray, Edna Reindel, Sueo Serisawa, Henrietta Shore, Elmer Stanhope, Stanton Macdonald Wright, and many others.
A color brochure of the exhibition is available upon request.
