Giuseppe Cadenasso self portrait SF Call Banner April 7 1894 Jean Baptiste Camille Corot
San Francisco's Giuseppe Cadenasso
finds a work by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot
in the Rubbish, SF Call, April 7, 1894
Cadenassos Gem Title SF Call 5 7 1894
Claude Monet once said of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, "There is only one master here—Corot. We are nothing compared to him, nothing."

San Francisco's Giuseppe Cadenasso, later known as "the Corot of California" would have agreed with Monet. Below, from the April 7, 1894 edition of the San Francisco Call, is the tale of Giuseppe Cadenasso rescuing a Corot original from a local framemaker's rubbish bin.
Cadenassos Gem Sketch by Jean Baptiest Camille Corot

Just about this time, when the violets are blooming and rheumatism is prevalent, and a "livelier iris changes on the burnished dove," Cadenasso, the artist, sits in his studio on Geary street and drinks inspiration from a small picture hanging above his chamber door.

When the art students pour in, headed by Martinez and Bennett and "French," in the evenings they, too, sit down and drink inspiration from the same picture. Then between puffs of pulverized cabbage leaves that the distinguished artist affects, he will exclaim parenthetically; "Ah, yes, boys, that is a great thing! That is a Corot!"

And the students poke their noses a little closer to the painting and echo the words, "Yes, that is a Corot." When lay visitors enter Cadenasso's studio he invariably, after showing them the portraits which adorn the walls, will finally point out to them that he has reserved as a grand treat, and say:

"Ah, you have seen Cadenasso, now I will show you a Corot."

The average visitors do not seem overwhelmed by the little piece of work of the great French master, but they pretend they are, and when they go home they tell their friends that they have seen Cadenasso's Corot.

As a matter of fact there is little doubt that the work is that of Corot, and how it came into the possession of Cadenasso is quite a story. He was passing a picture - frame store one day, and chanced in to see if he could get some frames. There, jumbled up among a lot of trash he espied a 5 x 8 picture which had all the strength, simplicity and freedom of the great Corot. Then Cadenasso, who is generally harmless as a dove, became wise and a serpent. He asked the price, which the dealer said was $2.50. The painter haggled over the price, and finally elicited from the framemaker that he had purchased the piece for two bits from a seedy looking Frenchman who had the absinthe habit.

After a while, Cadenasso got the picture for a song and hastened to his studio with the prize. He examined it carefully and became convinced that it was no copy, but a genuine original by someone, who, if not Corot, had all Corot's art. One day while trying to fix the picture, which was on board and broken across the corner, Cadenasso found that there was paper pasted over the back of it. He tore this off and to his joy discovered the legend on the back.

Then like the lady in the parable, who on finding her lost piece of silver called her friends in to rejoice, Cadenasso brought all the artists in he could find, and showed them the Corot. since that time when the art-students suspect they don't know everything about art they go to Cadenasso's studio and try to discover the secret of Corot's success. Dilettanti to throng the studio and it is getting quite the fad to see that Corot.

As for Cadenasso he refuses to part with his treasure, which is valued at fully $500. A small Corot at the Art Association rooms was valued at $7,000. He is proud of his possession, and whenever the visitor enters the studio the modest Cadenasso always says:

"You have seen Cadenasso, but now, ah! I will show you Corot."

Albert Bierstadt at the de Young,
Six Paintings Apart From What You Might Expect

Hudson River artist Albert Bierstadt came to California and produced huge, romantic, and epic scenes of the American West, flooded with illuminated with vast skies and glowing clouds. Some modern criticisms and even some of his contemporary critics considered his work grandiose and indulgent. But paintings
from the de Young's collection show a different dimension to Bierstadt's work.

Albert Bierstadt Photo
Albert Bierstadt

Born in Germany, three-year-old Albert Bierstadt moved along with his family to New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1833. As a youngster, he made impressive sketches with crayon. Twenty years later, he returned to his native Germany and studied painting at the Düsseldorf School.

Upon returning home, he painted in New England and New York for a brief period, but then embarked upon a daring and adventurous opportunity to explore the American West. He accompanied a U.S. Government surveyor named Frederick W. Lander on his first of many treks into the wilds of the American frontier.

In his own day, some critics found fault with Bierstadt's work, and he has received increasing criticism to the present day. Some critics suggested his large canvases to be an egotistical indulgence, sized for the self image of anyone who would own one. Especially bold criticism was leveled at Bierstadt because he changed details of the natural landscape to give his works a sense of awe. Some would say he would paint his scenes the way he felt they should be rather than the way they were. But countering all this criticism, Bierstadt regularly sold his paintings for huge sums, while gaining adoration from the art loving public.

Because of his large public appeal and financial success, his fame grew and he was elected a member of the National Academy and received honors for his work throughout America and Europe. He is believed to have completed over 4,000 paintings, many of which survive today, and prints of his work remain widely popular and available. Original works are offered in the auction market from time to time at hefty prices.

Above are three thumbnail photos of paintings which typify most of Bierstadt's work

Below are six atypical Bierstadt paintings from the de Young Museum's collection of American paintings.

Albert Bierstadt Roman Fish Market Arch of Octavius
Roman Fish Market, Arch of Octavia, 1858
Albert Bierstadt Sunlight and Shadow
Sunlight and Shadow, 1862
The Roman Fish Market, Arch of Octavia shows the aged architecture glory of Rome's past playing host to a common fish market filed with patrons and merchants going about their daily enterprise without ceremony or romance. His Sunlight and Shadow of a a shaded church door is a stunning piece, exhibiting a practiced eye in discerning the marvelous dance of light and shadow cast on the statues, church door and cobblestones.
Albert Bierstadt Study of Indians Hunting Buffalo
Study of Indians Hunting Buffalo, 1888
Albert Bierstadt View of donner Lake California
View of Donner Lake, California, 1871 - 72

The Study of Indians Hunting Buffalo may have been a scene Bierstadt could have witnessed on earlier treks through the American West, but by the time this painting was done in 1888, the west had been covered with railroad tracks and strung with barbed wire. The shameful slaughter of bison had already taken place. Yet his depiction of daring hunters with spears while riding bareback on mustangs speaks to their courage and strength. This painting stands as a social statement of an American West which had disappeared, and stands along with other of Bierstadt's contemporaries in capturing the scenes of a vanishing west.

Albert Bierstadt California Spring
California Spring
, 1875

Albert Bierstadt Port of Nassau
Port of Nassau

His View of Donner Lake, California done in the early 1870's is a scene familiar to many modern day Californians who've made the relatively easy drive up I-80 to view this lake from the perspective of the mountain slopes rising from its western shore. Although this scene displays Bierstadt's more romantic and traditional treatment, it is a locale not nearly as famous as the multitude of paintings done of Yosemite Valley or Mount Shasta, and is a treat for that reason alone.

His California Spring again is a romantic treatment of a Central Valley agricultural scene, but is far more tranquil than his paintings of the towering Sierra. His Port of Nassau is a working harbor long ago in the Caribbean, and apart from the typical Bierstadt subject matter.

The de Young's American paintings collection has many treasures from a wide variety of American painters, especially some gems from William Keith and Thomas Hill. So, on your next visit to the de Young to see the Birth of Impressionism exhibition (ending September 6) or the soon to arrive Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay beginning September 25, make time to view the de Young's collection of American painters and enjoy these more rare scenes by Albert Bierstadt.

Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery - new space.

Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery now has a satellite gallery. A section of Bodega Bay's Smith & Kirk Contemporary Art and Custom Framing on Hwy 1, next to the Ren Brown Collection, has provided an opportunity to feature other paintings besides the exhibits in the main gallery nearby on Eastshore Road. Smith & Kirk is open Wednesdays through Sundays, so we will be seen by more of the visitors to Bodega Bay. We will be found there some days, and are nearby and available most times. A selection of paintings by Joshua Meador, Alexander Dzigurski and his son Alex II, and John W. Hilton and his daughter Kathi are currently featured.

Whales in Bodega Bay during the Summer?

Bodega Bay Marine Laboritory reports, and our own eywitness experience confirms, that whales are present in Bodega Bay this summer. There seems to be a large population of krill in our waters attracting the whales. So your next trip to Bodega Bay, you may want to bring along a good set of peeled eyes, a long lensed camera, and binoculars.

Marvin Cone at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, also
home to the paintings of Iowa Regionalist Grant Wood

Linda particularly notes the current exhibitions at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art in Iowa, which features her favorite Regionalist painter Marvin Cone 1891-1965 (to August 22): The Sky's the Limit: Marvin Cone's Clouds. The museum is also showing (to September 19) the Riley Collection of significant works by French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, as well as offering ongoing viewing of Grant Wood's works there and at the Grant Wood Studio. Cone once said, "The purpose of art is not to reproduce life, but to present an editorial, a comment on life.... The artist does not set out to imitate nature. What would be the purpose of that? Let the camera with its clever mechanism imitate. Art, such as poetry, music, and painting, is simply a portion of the experience of the artist. When we actually see ideals, they become real to us. Art traces an abstraction and makes it audible or visual. It symbolizes the whole of life. We believe in something we can see.”

Marvin Cone, Golden Afternoon 1922

"Saving Paradise"
Over a hundred years ago, many artists were fascinated with the splendor of California, which compelled them to paint the scenic beauty of California. Although the great romantic image of Old California remains, the unique landscape has changed dramatically. For our time, we are fortunate to be able to view some of these rare paintings and are able to briefly return to a time long ago when California was an unspoiled paradise.

In 1894 Sandzen immigrated to the United States. Considered a post-Impressionist for his use of color and expressionist in technique, Sandzén created vibrant and dynamic paintings of prairie and western landscapes. In 1908, he made his first trip to Colorado and in 1915 became a regular visitor to Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico. He found the Southwest and its mountains “… a paradise for the painter.”
