Figurative art has been a mainstay for artists throughout the ages. But California Modernist interpretations of the figure during the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s brought a new boldness of color, composition and sensuality to the genre. We are pleased to present an extensive survey of interpretations of the figure by some of California’s foremost Modernists.
Featured are important paintings and sculpture by Mabel Alvarez, Victor Arnautoff, Franz Bergmann, Brents Carlton, Boris Deutsch, Ralph Chessé, Francis de Erdely, Ross Dickinson, Lorser Feitelson, John Emmett Gerrity, Robert Gilbert, John Langley Howard, Boris Lovet-Lorski, Helen Clark Oldfield, Otis Oldfield, Sueo Serisawa, Benjamin Vaganov, Frede Vidar, Bernard Zakheim, and others.
A color brochure of the exhibition is available upon request.
