CALIFORNIA SCENE PAINTING 1890 – PresentCalifornai Scene Painting

UCI Langston Museum of California Art AND Hilbert Museum

The two museums we will visit specialize in California landscape and scene painting.  The UCI Museum is a small, little-known gem, devoted to California Impressionist paintings between the 1890’s and the 1930’s.  The recently expanded, much larger Hilbert Museum displays works primarily from the 1940’s to the present.

The paintings are both wonderful works of art and precious records of how California was in the “olden days.”  The UCI Museum’s current exhibit explores how different religious outlooks (Catholicism, Theosophy, Protestant Evangelism, and nature mysticism) shaped landscape painting in California between 1890 and 1930’s.  The Hilbert Museum features paintings by a diverse group of California artists, including a large exhibit devoted to Millard Sheets, perhaps the most celebrated California 20th-century artist; an exhibit of paintings by Emigdio Vasquez, “the Godfather of Chicano Art;” and an exhibit of “Views of Orange County.”
