Presenting 16 artists whose works helped to define a regional California style and who exemplify the best in California and American Modernism.
June 28, 2003 – September 27, 2003
In our opening exhibition, Spencer Helfen Fine Arts presents the works of 16 artists who lived and worked in Southern California — offering a survey of Modernist themes, styles and techniques as expressed by these important Southern California Modernists. Encompassing Surrealism and Magic Realism, Social Realism and WPA-inspired works, the exhibition also highlights the work of the founders of Post-Surrealism and a key proponent of the demountable sculpture.
On view are a variety of works, including fine oil paintings, works on paper, and sculptures in wood, marble and ceramic.
A fully illustrated catalog of the exhibition is available.
