Title: California Impressionists

Author(s): Susan Landauer

"The Georgia Museum of Art has joined with The Irvine Museum in presenting an exhibition and book celebrating the work of forty...painters who worked in California from the turn of the century through the beginning of the Great Depression. It includes the diverse Impressionist groups that emerged in the northern and southern areas of the state, with works drawn from public and private collections throughout California. Featured artists include such well-known California artists as Maurice Braun and Guy Rose, and Eastern painters who worked briefly in the region such as Childe Hassam and William Merritt Chase. This full-color book features insightful essays from Susan Landauer, an independent scholar specializing in the art of California; Donald D. Keyes, curator of paintings at the Georgia Museum of Art, and curator of the exhibition; and Jean Stern, executive director of The Irvine Museum. The exhibition and book are presented as part of the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games Cultural Olympiad."
