Join Jean Stern, Executive Director of the Irvine Museum and recognized authority on California Impressionism, for an engaging discussion of the premier paintings in the Museum's current exhibition, California Impressionism: Paintings from the Irvine Museum.
From the turn-of-the-century until the start of the Depression, painting in California was dominated by a remarkable artistic style that combined several distinctive aspects of American and European art. Commonly called California Impressionism or California Plein-Air Painting, this movement was concerned with the colors and the splendid light of the Golden State. Masterpieces of California Impressionism from the Irvine Museum, arguablly the most important collection of West Coast American Impressionism will be discussed. The Irvine Museum is the only museum in California dedicated to the preservation and display of California Impressionism.
