"Reflections of California" is both an exceptionally beautiful art book and an important and interesting record of California history. The paintings in this book are examples of the California Impressionist style, dating from approximately 1890 to 1930. "The Irvine Museum is pleased to organize this memorial exhibition, reflections of California, in remembrance of Athalie Richardson Irvine Clarke, who died last year after ninety years of vigorous and spirited life. Among her many accomplishments, Athalie R. Clarke, together with her daughter, Joan Irvine Smith, founded The Irvine Museum in 1992. This exhibition of California Impressionist paintings offers a wonderful way to portray her remarkable life and, at the same time, to share with our patrons the wondrous joy and the extraordinary beauty of California Impressionist art."
