"By 1945, modernist art found a foothold in California, having first been introduced at the 1915 Exposition at the Palace of the Fine Arts in San Francisco, where nearly 12,000 works of art were displayed."

Excerpt from California Painters

Styles of Interest

"The advent of Impressionism was like the opening of a great big door onto new vistas in European and American art. It was a release from the classical strictures of the academies where accuracy of forms, figures and architecture, was required before the application of color. In America, some of the earliest exponents of Impressionism were Mary Cassatt, J. Alden Weir, Theodore Robinson, and John Twachtmann."

Excerpt from Impressionists Pre 1940

Groups of Interest

"Violet Oakley was one of the first preeminent women mural painters and at the Pennsylvania Capitol Building created some of the largest murals in existence. Vardea Chryssa was the first artist of note, male or female, to incorporate neon tube lighting into fine art; and Edmonia Lewis and Evelyn Longman were two of the first black-women sculptors to earn national recognition."
