More than 20 missions stretch from San Diego to Sonoma, reminding us of our rich Spanish and Mexican heritage. These historical Missions of California were fascinating to the early artists who saw in them an abundance of beauty and were drawn to their romantic past. These important paintings are a testament to the powerful influence that art can have on preserving the past, increasing awareness, and instigating change. Majestic Missions features past and present paintings of California missions as well as works of nature by the Early California Impressionists.
