California Dreaming: Plein-Air Painting from San Francisco to San Diego

Posted on  January 9, 2013

View an exhibition that presents a selection of early modern paintings that celebrate the topography of California.

 

When you visit the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, make sure you see the exhibition, California Dreaming: Plein-Air Painting from San Francisco to San Diego, which presents a selection of 20th-century paintings that celebrate the specific topography and climactic effects associated with the regional landscape from San Francisco to San Diego.

 

En plein air, or outdoors, refers to this collection of paintings’ focus on the breathtaking landscapes of California,” Boom: A Journal of California explains. “From San Francisco to San Diego, the work in this exhibition includes…paintings done in the style of California Impressionism—heavily influenced by French Impressionism, but still a distinct regional trend.”

 

Come see the natural paradise that we call the Golden State on canvas. The exhibition will run until March 24th.

 

Southern California was a mecca for young, modernist artists influenced by French Impressionism, a movement preoccupied with capturing the immediate effects of light and color under ever-changing climactic conditions. The regional style of California Plein-Air Painting was created by a group of cosmopolitan painters, whose mobility was facilitated by the new railroad lines to the West Coast. While technically varied, all of the artists represented here were utterly devoted to depicting the natural paradise we aptly call the Golden State. –Santa Barbara Museum of Art
