In this illustrated lecture, Mr. Stern discusses the various aspects that make California one of the most ecologically diverse places on earth. He will relate how early expeditions recorded the natural beauty of the land and how some locales became National Parks. The lecture will end with a series of images that show how specific places looked a century ago and how they look now.
California, during the last part of the nineteenth and early decades of the twentieth centuries, was home to a large and prolific group of landscape painters. These dedicated artists painted outdoors, or en plein-air, in order to capture the true appearance of California’s rolling hills, snow-capped mountains, beaches and deserts.
The lecture consists of about 100 slides and lasts approximately 45 minutes with time for questions and answers afterwards.
Advance tickets recommended.
