Join art historian Jean Stern as he examines the principal painters of Laguna Beach between 1890 – 1930. From the very start, the small coastal town of Laguna Beach has been an artists’ colony. Blessed with a year-round mild climate, clear and intense sunlight and an abundance of coastal scenery, Laguna Beach was home to a number of early California artists who in turn spread the word and invited other artists to come here. The lecture features archival photographs and examples of works by the most prominent artists of early Laguna Beach.
Mr. Stern presents a brief and concise narrative of this period of American Impressionism and discusses some of the leading painters of the style. These artists include Franz A. Bischoff (1864-1929), George K. Brandriff (1890-1936), Maurice Braun (1877-1941), Benjamin C. Brown (1865-1942), Alson S. Clark (1876-1949), Anna Hills (1882-1930), Joseph Kleitsch (1882-1931), Edgar Payne (1883-1947), Elsie Palmer Payne (1884-1971) Hanson D. Puthuff (1875-1972), Granville Redmond (1871-1935), Guy Rose (1867-1926), Donna Schuster (1883-1953), William Wendt (1865-1946), Julia Bracken Wendt (1869-1942) as well as several others.
