The Bohemian Grove - nature hosting great art Photo Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde
Of the Bohemian Club, Wilde quipped, “I have never seen so many well-dressed, well-fed, businesslike-looking Bohemians in all my life.”

Oscar Wilde visited San Francisco's Bohemian Club in 1882. He was criticized in the San Francisco press for his dress, shoulder length hair and his youth (at the time only twenty-eight years old). But Wilde did not restrain his wit.
To Wilde, successful California businessmen and artists referring to themselves as "Bohemian" seemed humorous. In the 19th century, "Bohemians" were a group of artists, centered mostly in Paris, who were nonconformists, purposely going against the
established grain of culture, preferring new ideas of artistic expression. As a badge of honor, they defined their lives by the virtue of voluntary poverty, frugality, and free love.

But the Bohemian Club had chosen its name ten years before Wilde's visit, and it was well along on its influential path.

A group of artists and patrons believed that exposure to art was a way to counteract the negative effects of industrialization and urbanization. Originally, the intent for the Bohemian Club was to be a journalist-only organization, with artists able to join as honorary members. But the original phrasing was revised, and the club allowed full membership to journalists, writers, artists, actors, and musicians,

and others whose appreciation of the fine arts and literature made them worthy of membership. Soon, the club attracted the elite of California's business and artistic world. The Bohemian Club saw California as a place of new vision, the home of new dreams.

The show opens July 12 and hangs through September 2009. For the 19th consecutive year along the Russian River, the Christopher Queen Galleries offers a show of original paintings by a large number of distinguished Bohemian Club artists on exhibit and available for sale.

Sacramento's Crocker Museum and its European Salon Style Exhibition
In the 19th century, this is the way it was done. The Crocker family displayed the treasures of their collection in the accepted European manner, "salon style," the way paintings were shown in the grand galleries of Paris.
Crocker Museum California Paintings Salon
The California and American Paintings hanging "salon style" at Sacramento's Crocker Museum

Sacramento's Crocker Museum gives us a feeling for what life was like for the Crocker family, living in their 19th Century palace in Sacramento. They chose to display their growing American and California art collection according to the custom of the times, the European salon style. Looking at their collection in the 21st century, one is tempted to speculate that the intent wasn't to impress guests with the quality of the art, but by the overwhelming amount of it.

Decisions regarding the arrangement of the paintings included quality, but a the painting's size and visual appeal were also considered. The best paintings -- a subjective judgment at best -- were placed "on the line" (meaning eye level). Other paintings were "skyed," requiring a strained neck and superman vision to give them a proper viewing. (We wished we could have had a better view of many of the gems in the top row.)

The impact of floor to ceiling works of art is stunning, but individual works of art have no room to breathe. Any one of these works would command attention in almost any other setting.

The great American painter James McNeil Whistler is credited with developing an alternative to salon style exhibits. He preferred a sparer style, showcasing

paintings hung wide apart on light colored walls, similar to the manner in which most museums and galleries hang paintings today. The Crocker Museum provides a service in showing us the salon style as it was experienced by the wealthy of the 19th century.

But soon, the Crocker will have more space to work with. They are tripling the size of their current exhibition space. Their new addition is nearing

completion and will soon open. On a recent visit to the Crocker, we were informed that only 4% of the museum's collection was on exhibit. In any event it is a collection of great beauty, well worth the visit to such lovely spaces.

State Capitol Museum
California Capitol Building

California's capitol building may be presently experiencing some dark days politically, but this historic and beautiful building has been, still is, and will always be the centerpiece of the Golden State, and serves as the repository of some extraordinary paintings and history.

Among the Capitol's collection of historic California paintings are the official gubernatorial portraits. They are displayed throughout the building, and were done by some of the state's best contemporary artists at the time each governor served. All the governors' portraits are available for viewing, except Arnold Schwarzenegger's yet to be unveiled.

Most of the older portraits were done in a rather traditional manner, showing the state's chief executive in a dignified business suit in a formal pose.

Governor Ronald Reagan's portrait was a departure from tradition. His portrait was done by famed Bay Area landscape artist Robert Rishell. Rishell, known for his use of stark light and shadow, had the governor pose outside the Capitol in dazzling sunlight with his electric smile. Also breaking with tradition was Jerry Brown's distinctive abstract done by famed southern California artist, Don Bachardy. Governors George Dukmejian, Pete Wilson, and Gray Davis all followed Ronald Reagan's example with the outdoors playing a major part in each composition. Gray Davis took the idea even further, leaving the Capitol Grounds for a scene among wild California poppies at Monterey County’s Palo Corona Ranch, the “Gateway to Big Sur.” Gray Davis' portrait was done by artist Robert Siemans, and showed lands newly purchased for parkland during the Davis administration.

Below the rotunda on the basement level are four triptych paintings entitled The History of California 1914, by Arthur Frank Mathews and his wife Lucia Mathews. Each triptych depicts an epoch of California's history. The four epochs are the coming of the white gods; the Spanish occupation and building of missions; the pouring in of civilization following gold discovery, swift industrial development, and the achievements of civilization in California in the present and future. The canvases were originally commissioned by the State Legislature in 1913, for which Arthur and Lucia Mathews were paid $10,000.

Born in Eastern Europe, the Yiddish Theater has a long history. There are records of Yiddish Theater troops around Warsaw, Poland as early as 1830. Throughout the remainder of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth, Yiddish Theater spread throughout the European and American Jewish community. Like all art forms, it continually was evolving and experimenting with new forms of expression.

In Russia, in the years after the Russian Revolution, a new Jewish Theater arose, merging the creative genius

of choreographers, actors and writers. Set Design was one of the hallmarks of this new Theater, and it was influenced by avant garde movements in art: Cubism, Futurism, and Constructivism.

San Francico's Jewish Contemporary Museum hosts this exhibit which tells the tale of the flourishing and vibrant movement which existed in Russia for thirty years between the Revolution and the brutal repression of the Stalinist era.

Central to the exhibit are the famed Chagall theater murals created in 1920 for the Moscow State Yiddish Theater. This theater was well liked by many outside the Jewish culture.

Excerpt from "Balancing Acts," narrated by Ed Asner
This video and more information of this exhibit are
available on the Contemporary Jewish Museum's website.

The Jewish Theater ended under the repression of Stalin. In 1948, Solomon Mikhoels, a brilliant actor and director, was murdered in a crime staged to look like a truck accident. Testament to the influence of the Jewish Theater, over ten thousand people attended his funeral.

On exhibit are Solomon Mikhoels' broken eye glasses removed from the blood-stained snowy street. The theater was liquidated a year later. At this time, the archives of the Moscow’s Yiddish Theater were moved to Moscow’s Bakhrushin State Central Theater Museum. In 1953, a fire destroyed the repository. It is widely believed that the fire was deliberate, and was a Soviet attempt to wipe out the memory of the Russian Jewish Theater.

Grant Wood with a Painting
Grant Wood
The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art is home to the studio of famed regional artist Grant Wood 1991-1942, and includes the largest collection of his works.
In June of 2008, the Mississippi River Valley and many of its tributaries such as the Cedar River rose high above flood stage, devastating the region.

The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art removed their collection to the highest parts of its building, rescuing many pieces from their basement. The clean up and restoration of the museum and of the entire community has been the major focus of the last year. To celebrate, the museum is displaying the best of its Grant Wood collection. For those who live near and those passing through, this Iowan community, just 250 miles west of Chicago, is well worth the stop.

In 2002, the museum was given the building containing Grant Wood's studio, where his famed masterpiece American Gothic was painted. The studio is three blocks from the museum, and is where Grant Wood lived between 1824 and 1835. These were the beginning years of the depression. American Gothic was done in 1930, and has become an American icon, ranking along with the Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and Edvard Munch's The Scream as the most parodied paintings ever. It features younger sister Nan 1900-1990 and a Cedar Rapids dentist, Dr. Byron McKeeby (1867-1950). Together with the pitchfork between them and the gothic window behind, they became a symbol of the hard working American Spirit, determined in the face of adversity.

The exhibit, Grant Wood: in Focus, is from the museum's extensive collection. It traces his artistic career from his youth until his passing in 1942, and is an overview of his contributions, achievements, and influence.
