"Mandarins to Mariachis," a selection of paintings by Theodore N. Lukits
April 3 - May 2, 1999
"Mandarins to Mariachis," a selection of Asian and Mexican-Californian paintings by Theodore N. Lukits (1897 - 1992) brings to the public the unique opportunity to view the works of this versatile artist. Theodore Lukits is one of America's most intriguing Orientalist artists. Although his work includes numerous fine American landscapes, it is his Orientalist paintings and sketches, along with his Mexican-Californian works, that are featured in this exhibition organized by the California Art Club, the Lukits Art Trust and Jeffrey Morseburg.
