Title: A Time and Place - From the Ries Collection of California Painting

Author(s): Harvey L. Jones

"The time and place of the Ries collection of California painting spans both a period of about 50 years, beginning around 1905, and a location along the thousand-mile coastline of California at the western edge of the continent. The confluence of historical event and human myth-making that occurred in this time and place was unusual, perhaps unprecedented, and we are only now beginning to understand it." "The collection has been formed by the personal taste and connoisseurship of James and Linda Ries, whose interest in and knowledge of the art of California has grown along with their collecting..." Harvey L. Jones, Senior Curator of Art, The Oakland Museum.
