Biography Ira Yeager
In the 1980s, two of artist Ira Yeager's exhibitions changed his life. The first, 'Ira Yeager in the Country,' focused on Northern California and Napa Valley landscapes. The second, 'Neo Veneto,' chronicled the lifestyle of wealthy Venetians of the 15th century.
Of special interest to him was the Venetians' passion for establishing country farms as rural getaways to escape the hectic life of the cities. "They (the Venetian gentry) would go up the canals in their gondolas to their villas alongside the river, where they would play farmer," Yeager said. "The 'Neo Veneto' series was really about me leaving the city." Both events pushed him to give up his city life and move permanently to Calistoga in 1990.
