His extraordinary gifted talent expanded established norms, leaving in his wake a stunningly stylized body of work in whatever artistic medium he chose. His greatest contribution was as co-founder of Cubism along with Georges Braque, where parts of objects or models were analyzed and then reassembled in an abstracted form, using a multitude of viewpoints, placing the subject into a greater context. Through effective use of intersecting surfaces, random angles and the loss of depth, Picasso could reveal energies within his subject which could reach beyond normal paths of perception and speak directly to the sub-conscious, beautifully reinventing accepted ideas of shape, color, and design. The de Young's exhibition dips into each loosely defined period of Picasso's career, allowing us to analyze and abstract the characteristics of each.
This exhibition features over 100 masterpieces from the permanent collection of the Musee National Picasso including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints from his long and fabled career.
Picasso (1881 - 1973) achieved success in a wide variety of styles in both painting and sculpture.
Picasso's Blue Period (1901-1904) was a dark time when he created somber paintings using blue and blue-green shades. During this period, Picasso had a warm relationship with Fernande Olivier, a Parisian model, and he enjoyed the camaraderie of other contemporary French painters. Picasso's African Period lasted from 1907 - 1909 marked by a time when Picasso was greatly influenced by African sculpture, especially ceremonial masks.
His neoclassical works contained images of centaurs, minotaurs, nymphs, and fauns inspired by the classical world of Italy. In the middle of the 1920's, Picasso was working with Surrealists (1925-1930's) , although he never liked being labeled as one. This video provides a large sampling of Picasso's work on YouTube, accompanied by music from The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amedeus Mozart (7:50). Sacramento's Crocker Museum is celebrating The Summer of Impressionism with three concurrent exhibits. Franz moved to Southern California where he established a new reputation as a landscape painter of a variety of California locales, from Monterey south to Laguna Beach, and from the California deserts north into the Sierra. For California painting enthusiasts, Ransom Hodredge's Indian Council (above) was most pleasing as it tells the story of California as it once was. Garnering a great deal of attention was Childe Hassam's Old House, East Hampton, an expressively colored and textured work showing a simple Long Island house, yet having the capacity to cause viewers to inhale and catch their breath as they gazed in wonderment.
Also causing crowds to assemble and marvel was Edward Willis Redfield's, Burning of Center Bridge, c 1923 (below). Redfield compared his painting to a newspaper photograph, illustrating something which actually occurred.
The exhibit also includes three wonderful works by Norwegian American Jonas Lie (1880 - 1940). Photography was not allowed at this exhibition, but here are the titles and artists of some quite notable paintings on exhibit. Birger Sandzen's Farm on the Smokey is a large canvas, approximately 4' x 8' and is prominently displayed. Albert Fuller Grave's The Nest Egg 1910 tells the tale a newly married couple standing in a bank dutifully adding to their savings, and striving to achieve their hopes and dreams.
Edgar Payne's Canyon de Chelly exhibits the strength and boldness of the American landscape, easily interpreted as a metaphor for the American Spirit. Holdrege's Indian Council in Yosemite, c 1880 (pictured at the beginning of this article) shows his ability to show the drama of the California landscape and California's place in that landscape. Hanging in other galleries of the Crocker are paintings by three additional artists represented in our gallery collection, Sam Hyde Harris, Paul Lauritz, and Conrad Buff. Sam Hyde Harris was a remarkably successful commercial illustrator and painter of landscapes of Southern California with a keen understanding and appreciation for its special light. Conrad Buff is known for his notable strikingly-constructed mountain and desert landscapes of the Southwest. Gottardo's father was not pleased in his son's desire to pursue art, but still was supportive.
Like most other San Francisco artists, he lost his studio in the quake, and he shared in the community's urgent resolve to rebuild the city.
Gottardo had long believed in the unification of art and architecture, and was willing to add his talents in rebuilding the city. The San Francisco Library had been designed prior to the 1906 quake, but the plans were shelved. In 1996, the San Francisco Library moved from its old building into its gleaming new edifice across from the Civic Center Plaza, and the Piazzoni murals had to find a new home.
Throughout his successful artistic career in San Francisco, the Piazzoni family often retreated to inspirational beauty and solitude of his father's ranch in Carmel Valley. A selection of paintings and works on paper by artists who have been inspired by the grandeur and variety of land and sea on the west coast. One of these missing signs has found its way to the Bolinas Museum, and is on permanent display in the History section. For over a century, Bolinas has been a painting locale and home for some of the best painters in California. Three works of the Bolinas Lagoon were most intriguing done by Arthur William Best, Alfred Fransworth and Jack Wisby. So, for the explorer part of your nature, we highly recommend a trip to Bolinas and a visit to its small but fascinating museum.
Our current gallery exhibition is entitled California's Northern Coast, Paintings of Monterey, Marin, Sonoma & Mendocino Counties, featuring works by Linda Sorensen and an eclectic selection of works from our collection. Jean Mannheim is the subject of a new book, From the Versatile Brush, the Life and Art of Jean Mannheim. Beginning June 7th and lasting through to mid August, CalTrans will be mending Highway One south of town in Cheney Gulch. Director Arne Glimcher (The Mambo Kings) and narrator-producer Martin Scorsese present this art-filled documentary that explores the connection between cinema and the Cubist paintings of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. The Christopher Winfield Gallery in Carmel with the cooperation of ACA Galleries of New York, now has some of Jack's work on display. Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery was honored to participate in the Arts and Wine Festival, a fundraiser for the Healdsburg Museum sponsored by Healdsburg Senior Living on Saturday, May 21st. We have added photos of some of the late Gail Packer's etchings to our site, along with a video of her working in her studio and demonstrating and explaining the etching process. Linda Sorensen's studio is located below the Terrapin Creek Cafe and the Local Color Gallery. Bodega Bay: A little channel that the waves had to come through at Goat Rock Beach in Bodega Bay.
In his research of historic Arizona Desert Painting, Gary learned of a gathering of well known artists at the Wetherill-Coville Guest Ranch in 1922. Initially, Gary was only interested in a specific gathering which occurred in August of 1922, but with Harvey providing the guest registry of the hotel, a twenty-five year long parade of visitors was now known. Certainly one of the more recognizable visitors to the Wetherill Guest Ranch was Teddy Roosevelt. Harvey Leake told Gary of fascinating stories he had heard from his mother, tales of native Americans arriving at the Trading Post on foot or horseback to trade woven goods, pelts or turquoise and silver jewelry in return for supplies. With Harvey's help, Gary Fillmore was able to reconstruct some of this fascinating history, how a long list of notable desert painters who came to paint the majesty of Monument Valley shared the humble hospitality of the Wetherill-Coville Guest Ranch. In 1912, Albert visited Paris and gained an invitation to visit a salon at Gertrude Stein's home.
While in his late 30's, Albert Barnes approached his old high school buddy William Glackens who was an active member of New York's Ashcan School.

Over time, his collection grew to include 69 paintings by Cézannes, 60 by Matisse, 44 by Picasso and a huge block of 181 works by Renoir.
Back in 1923, Barnes showed off his collection to a less than appreciative audience who, at the time, thought the paintings were too avant-garde. Barnes had his collection housed in an estate in Lower Marion in a building designed by Paul-Phillippe Cret, a graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He also limited access to the collection, requiring visitors to make appointments by letter, and on occasion refusing appointment requests.
Needless to say, the sequestration of this marvelous collection drew wide criticism and controversy.
From regionalist compositions of California's landscape to social realism scenes in its thriving cities, California Style Watercolors daringly defined and captured the essence of California and Californians from the 1920's into the 1950's.
This exciting method of painting proved to be an excellent way of telling a story in paint. Although probably not a major consideration while the artists painted these works, their works today often have become effective windows to the past In the Southend.
Take the opportunity to view this show featuring well over 100 California Style Watercolors.
The exhibition features 35 paintings representing the range of subject matter and technique characteristic of 17th-century painting in the Dutch Republic. Ray Carpenter, Christine Crozier, Don Ealy, Allen Fignone, Ronald Goldfinger, Paul Kratter, Sergio Lopez, Kyle Paliotto, Dave Sellers, Robert Semans, Bart Walker, Wanda Westberg and F. The Annex Galleries is a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA). West County Design provides an unexpected center of artistic sophistication in the charming town of Valley Ford in West Sonoma County. Its natural beauty and reputation as a progressive oasis on the western frontier have always been magnetic to artists. Vintage Bank Antiques is located in Historic Downtown Petaluma, corner of Western Avenue and Petaluma Blvd.
Then, the exhibit challenges us to reassemble the parts of his career into a cohesive whole, much like the creative process Picasso used creating one of his cubist paintings.
The overlapping periods of his career include The Blue Period (1901-1904), the Rose Period (1904-1906), the Expressionist Period, also known as his African Period (1907-1909), Cubism 1909-1916), Neoclassicism (1917-1925) and Surrealism (1925-1930's). From early in his childhood in the 1880's in the city of Málaga in the Andalusian region of Spain until his passing in Mougins in the South of France in 1973, his genius seamlessly exhibited an openness to experiment with a variety of theories, styles, techniques and ideas. The elevated mood of these paintings are in marked contrast to the Blue Period with the use of orange and pink colors often depicting circus people, acrobats and harlequins, and presented a reborn and much livelier spirit. The Rose Period is considered a transitional year for Picasso, a time when he was rising from the depths of his Blue Period and embracing life anew.
As French Imperialism ventured deeper into the African continent, a flood of exotic artifacts came to Paris accompanied by exaggerated stories of cannibalism and fantastic tales. As the war ended, the world seemed to need a rest, and perhaps due to that reality, artists laid aside avant garde styles, choosing to renew their interest in classical traditions and figuration.
His famed Guernica borrowed classical themes from his neoclassical period and merged them with analytic cubism.
But appealing to Picasso was Surrealism's challenge of dealing with physical and psychological states through exaggerated use of imaginary form and distorted perspective.
The de Young offers you the rare opportunity to view masterpieces from each of his artistic periods, abstract from each a portion of his genius, and reassemble them into your own appreciation of Picasso.
This exhibit has over 40 paintings from the Brooklyn Museum, featuring works by French artists Gustave Courbet and Claude Monet and American painters Childe Hassam and John Singer Sargent.
This exhibit features over forty works, including both ceramics and paintings, and has been organized by the Pasadena Museum of California Art. This stunning and large canvas is filled with a grove of California Live Oaks drenched in filtered summer light mixed with a haze of campfire smoke as Indians gather.
This painting once was exhibited at the James A Michener Art Museum, an institution which appreciates great story telling. During his lifetime, he was one of the best-known American landscape painters, counting among his friends, President Franklin Roosevelt. Eliot Candee Clark's The Bridge, Wilton Connecticut 1935 (not pictured here) exhibits a mood and depth of the American Landscape. He was active within the art community, served as president of the California Art Club, and was a member of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Commission, the Laguna Beach Art Association, the Royal Society of Art in England, and the Salmagundi Club in New York. He was a good friend and painting partner of Maynard Dixon, and later befriended and encouraged a talented young painter who worked for Walt Disney named Joshua Meador.
Along with his mother and brother, young Gottardo traveled from Switzerland to join his father who had come to California to establish a cattle ranch.
Among his notable accomplishments, he founded the California Society of Etchers and received very good reviews both nationally and internationally. He began teaching at the California School of Fine Arts, but extended his artistic reach far beyond the classroom. He began creating large murals for local buildings, and one of his most famed works was a series of magnificent murals done for the San Francisco Library. He successfully resisted modernist trends, remaining true to his personal credo, producing powerful works with highly individual expression. In an effort to keep down the number of un-wanted visitors to Bolinas, a band of zealous privacy loving residents have long been removing the turn-off sign from Highway One. But for the well motivated tourist willing to read a map, its not too difficult to find this marvelous corner of Marin County.
The museum's historic paintings on view at one time are small in number, but present the wealth and richness of Bolinas' art heritage. Ludmilla Welch's View of a Mountain Cottage evokes the quiet and beauty known by Mill Valley and Bolinas residents both long ago and even to the present day.
Carefully study your map before you go, especially the turn off from Highway 1 just north of Stinson Beach.
One of the paintings from our gallery's collection, almost six feet by four feet in size, is in the book. During this time there will be a traffic light and one lane traffic with brief waits no longer than five minutes. We're pleased and excited to host the Bodega Bay Short Film Festival, Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 28 and 29!
Gail's etchings continue to gain new fans as gallery visitors view her work for the first time while maintaining a well established community of collectors of her work. Gary wondered what such a gathering would have been like and lamented there was no record of what was said over the dining table. Between 1919 and 1943, a Who's Who in Southwest painting plus a long list of notables outside the art world all had visited this humble guest ranch situated near Monument Valley.
He had signed into the first registry for the ranch, but that document was stolen due to it having the former President's signature, a real loss for the story of the Wetherill Ranch and to Arizona history. The real treasure here is the paintings themselves, an artistic testament to the shared marvel these artists held for this landscape and the people who lived there. He has arranged for museum exhibitions, authored books and given talks concerning the desert, its history and the art it inspired.
He also possessed a keen interest in art, and throughout his life, he invested his fortune in art and establishing the Barnes Foundation in his name as an educational institution primarily focused on the needs of the underprivileged, and charged with managing his art collection for the ages. Other artists represented in his collection include Rousseau, Modigliani, Soutine, Seurat, Degas, and Van Gogh.

Being at the receiving end of criticisms from the traditional and cemented mind sets of the establishment, Albert Barnes held that establishment in low esteem, especially their henchmen, the art critics. He had the paintings hung showing relationships between paintings and objects, for example paintings were placed near furniture and well crafted medieval, Renaissance and Early American hinges (explained in the video). After a court challenge, the collection has moved to its newly constructed location in Philadelphia on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, with greatly enhanced access. Milford Zornes and Phil Dike helped establish this new method, using large sheets of paper, wet into wet backgrounds, free ranging broad bright brush stokes and use of the paper color as a color value in the painting.
It has proved a great medium to evoke memories and emotion, and express a wide range of social comment.
We can gain a feeling for what Angel's Flight was like in its hey-day or the buzz of life around Olivera Street, or the wonder created by LA's very first tangled free-ways. The business serves as a showroom for Bohemian Stoneworks, Current Carpets and Craig Collins Furniture. Modern scholars divide the styles of his career into periods, all in an effort to grasp and understand his magic. Picasso was in his early twenties, and was deeply saddened by the suicide of a friend, Carlos Casagemas. Although both the paintings of the Blue and Rose Periods where done in Paris, the Blue Period work is considered to be influenced more by Spanish traditions while the Rose Period is considered to be more influenced by French painting.
This period is noted for its monochromatic use of browns and neutral colors as well as objects analyzed in terms of their shape. Guernica is a large canvas, perhaps Picasso's most famed painting, warning of the inhumanity, brutality and hopelessness of war. Throughout he worked in a variety of styles, often merging influences and languages of style in later works.
At age twenty-one, Franz left his native Austria and settled in Dearborn, Michigan in 1885. This stunning canvas tells the true story of the burning of this major bridge in 1923 which crossed the Delaware River connecting New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
From across the gallery, one could not help but notice that as museum visitors viewed this painting, they seemed to blend with the painted silhouettes of the crowd gathered to watch the blaze. He was best known for his blend of impressionism with the vigorous and colorful style of New York's Ashcan School.
For the most part, Paul was a self taught artist who won numerous awards from museums and expositions throughout California. The beauty of his Gottardo's new Carmel Valley home enthralled him, but inspired his passion for painting above farming. Gottardo thrived in his San Francisco studies, and he earned an opportunity to go to Paris and study with the masters.
These original 12 murals now have a place of honor in their own gallery at San Francisco's DeYoung Museum.
An unnamed art critic in Rome back in 1906 perhaps said it best when he wrote, "Any of Piazzoni's pictures is the faithful expression of what he has observed not only with the eye of a draughtsman or a colorist, but also with the feeling that has penetrated his soul.
Cal-Trans has given up replacing the sign, for as soon as it goes up, it soon goes missing. Gazing at the original really captures the mood and feel of Bolinas, a blending its fascinating history with its captivating atmosphics. You can count on experiencing one of the Bay Area's best kept secrets and Marin County's most hidden corner. CalTrans says work will be complete prior to August 15th, noting the California Red Legged Frog is protected by law and California Fish and Game won't permit their habitat to be disturbed after that date.
But as he dug deeper, he met the Harvey Leake, the great-grandson of John and Louisa Wetherill. Their art can only inspire us to see what they first saw, to explore and appreciate for ourselves the wonder of this magic land. Below are links to Gary's Blue Coyote Gallery, and a link to purchase Shadows on the Mesa. Through another Paris contact, Paul Guillaume, he became aware of the works of Amedeo Modigliani, Geiorgio de Chirico, and Chaim Soutine.
One would have to be an astronomer to handle the assumed worth of this collection, and it has been estimated by some experts to be in the range of 20 to 30 billion dollars. The paintings were hung without curatorial comment, so viewers could assess the art on its own merit. By the 1990's, the Foundation had difficulty financing the building maintenance and staff, and relented in allowing 80 paintings to make a three-year long tour.
We believe Albert Barnes' fear that the art won't be accepted and appreciated by the masses is, in 2012, ill founded. June managed to haul the tangled mess 400 miles north, where she was encountered by Mark Anello and his crew of the Annabelle in North Sonoma Coast waters off Gualala. Warren Davis and the rest of the team at Vintage Bank Antiques has assembled a spectacular inventory of paintings. His painting Les Demoiselles (above) is considered to be the first Cubist work done with African influences, especially the figures on the right side.
After 1912, Analytic Cubism evolved into Synthetic cubism (1912-1919) where paper fragments of wallpaper or newspaper were pasted into compositions, the first use of collage in fine art.
Sam and his neighbors included Frank Tenney Johnson, Jack Wilkinson Smith, Clyde Forsythe, Eli Harvey, and Norman Rockwell.
The young couple returned to Europe where he exhibited and received great reviews for his work. The final four murals are on long term loan to the Monterey Museum, near Piazzoni's beloved Carmel Valley. With his excellent eye, and the effects of the world-wide depression, Barnes was able to acquire great art at bargain prices. We are also available for scheduled appointments, especially for those who wish to view the gallery on Mondays or Tuesdays. Although June was initially uncooperative, she settled down and allowed the fishermen to do what they could. Picasso was not present, but when he learned of his friend's death, he began paining in blue. The original murals were commissioned in the early 1930's and remained there for nearly sixty five years. After decades in relative obscurity, this incredible collection will soon be available in Philadelphia -- masters whom you know well, but works you have not yet seen. Later on, a creatively stealth James Michener viewed the collection masquerading as a steelworker. We believe the availability of the collection goes a long way towards achieving its founder's dream, that these paintings endure to enlighten, educate, and inspire new generations of people to the joy and wonderment of this great art. Please call Dan at the gallery and schedule a visit, or call him on his cell, phone, 510-414-9821. In 1945, the final four murals were commissioned, but were not displayed at the San Francisco Library until 1975, where they remained for just over twenty years.
