Masters of California Impressionism

November 22, 2014 – May 23, 2015
Palm Desert, CA


Masters of California Impressionism celebrated the bright, optimistic paintings that changed the course of the prevailing style of the early 20th century. While American Impressionist painters on the East Coast depicted cold gray scenes from inside their homes and studios, the California Impressionists — who favored the state’s healthier climate and diverse natural scenery — painted en plein air, capturing the light and color of the diverse California regions.
