Title: Selections From The Irvine Museum

Author(s): Jean Stern

"Paramount is the conviction that the paintings housed in our museum are significant and indicative of the highest standards of American art. Furthermore, their beauty is magnificent and people everywhere will have their lives enriched by viewing them." "Thus, the multiple aspects of California Impressionist paintings, with their beauty, their significance as artworks and historical records, and their reverence for nature, have made a deep and abiding impact on me. They stand in silent testament to our regard for the environment, and their elegant account must not go unheeded. I sincerely hope that all who see these firsthand will be as moved by them as I have been." Joan Irvine Smith, President, The Irvine Museum
