San Francisco's Legion of Honor,
Impressionists on the Water,
celebrates the America's Cup
San Francisco Legion of Honor

This summer, the America's Cup will be held in San Francisco Bay. In honor of this event, the Legion of Honor is hosting "Impressionists on the Water," featuring works by Claude Monet, Gustave Caillebotte, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Camille Pissarro. These paintings have been brought together from the Musée d’Orsay, Paris; the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam; the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and from private collections.

Paintings depicting reflections in water are far different than mirrored reflections. When you think about it, the same subject is rendered twice, but in totally different ways.

For example, a boat on water is an appealing scene. The boat itself is pictured in the naturally occurring light, in fully lighted colors conditioned by the atmosphere, light angle and intensity.

But, when that same boat is shown as it is reflected in the surrounding water, hues are subdued, as the image merges with the rhythms of dancing ripples, creating an echoed shimmering vision of the original object.

One of the real treats of this exhibition were three large paintings by Gustave Caillebotte. His work in Paris included many interior scenes often including portraiture with his family serving as models. His paintings of the city capture the staccato urban life, with angular lines of architecture punctuated with busy figures in formal dress.

In dramatic contrast, his country paintings with water are reminiscent of Renoir's impressionistic style, capturing the tranquility of the country. He enjoyed creating leisurely water scenes, often of his family and friends engaged in boating, fishing or swimming.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was one of the key artists responsible for the development of impressionism. He is known for vibrancy of color and focus on subjects in private and unobserved moments. His Dance at the Le Moulin de la Galette shows figures at an outdoor dance, in mottled sunlight and shadow.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, La Seine à Argenteuil

In the late 1860's, Renoir and his friend Claude Monet practiced painting outdoor light and water. Monet professed that shadow is not brown or black, but the reflected color of the object reflected. Today, we know this effect as "diffuse reflection." With shadows, the reflected light bounces off in different angles, causing the reflected light to be less intense than the light seen coming directly from the object itself.

Claude Monet
Claude Monet, The Seashore at Sainte-Adresse, 1864

Claude Monet founded French Impressionist painting and defined the movement with both his paintings and artistic philosophy. He is especially beloved for his belief that artists should paint their perception of nature while painting en plein air. As a young art student, Monet didn't like formalized

art training. He became a student of Charles Gleyre where he met Renoir, Bazille and Sisley. Together, they explored new approaches to painting, exploring light effects en plein air, using broken and rapid brush strokes.

California State Railroad Museum Sacramento Two noteworthy paintings
at Sacramento's
California State Railroad Museum

Summer has arrived, and Bodega Bay is hosting visitors from Sacramento and the Central Valley who come to Bodega Bay to enjoy our seaside breezes. To return the favor, here's our encouragement to visit one of Sacramento's treasures, the California State Railroad Museum.

The California State Railroad Museum is a fantastic journey into yesterday, telling the amazing story of the Transcontinental Railroad, how it was built and how it vaulted California's economic growth. Building the railroad was arguably the most impressive technological achievement of the 19th century, and the museum tells this story. It also exhibits the story of California's growing economy, ranging from how logs from California's great forests were moved by rail to how iced box cars wheeled their way east, transporting California's agricultural produce to dining tables in the Midwest and East.

Passenger rail began too. Before train travel, transportation from New York to California was a lengthy and dangerous endeavor involving six months of bumpy travel over land, or uncomfortable and dangerous months at sea. But with the railroad, the distance could be covered in a little over a week in "relative" comfort. Alongside the tracks were telegraph lines, shrinking the communications time gap from weeks to hours and even minutes. California physically became part of the nation.

This impressive museum features massive displays of locomotives and train cars. But for art enthusiasts, there are two notable paintings to look for. One is by famous California landscape artist Thomas Hill and the other is of Santa Barbara being served by a locomotive of the Sante Fe Railroad by Southern California painter and illustrator Sam Hyde Harris.

Just a year after the Gold Rush in 1850, the nation began planning a railroad to California. But planning was interrupted by the Civil War, and construction was not completed until 1869.

Construction was a monumental effort. Track was laid westward by the Central Pacific railroad, and from the west the Union Pacific laid track eastward from Sacramento, traversing the treacherous high Sierra, a staggering engineering challenge requiring bridges, tunnels and huge amounts of lowly paid Chinese immigrant labor exposed to exceptionally dangerous tasks with little regard to occupational safety.

The driving of the Golden Spike joining the completed eastern and western portions of laid track took place in Promontory Summit, Utah on May 10, 1869.

The Last Spike Photo
A. J. Russell's photograph of the Driving of the Golden Spike in Promontory Point, Utah Territory in 1869.

A. J. Russell was an experienced Civil War photographer. Getting photographic delicate equipment to battlefields was a cumbersome and problematic task. But Russell met that challenge, and his experience allowed him to head for the wilds of the Utah Territory to capture this historic scene. East and West were joined with the driving of the Golden Spike, and Russell's photograph captured the real scene, with celebration and drinking.

The Last Spike Thomas Hill Painting
The Last Spike by San Francisco artist Thomas Hill, commissioned by Leland Stanford in 1877 and completed in 1883.

Leland Stanford served as President of the Union Pacific Railroad, and he wanted the story of the driving of the Golden Spike to be preserved for posterity. For him, the photograph by A. J. Russell was insufficient.

Six years after the completion of the railroad, Stanford commissioned Thomas Hill to create a large painting of the event. He was charged with producing a painting documenting the important people in attendance. Central to the festivities is Stanford, larger than life, holding the sledge hammer, surrounded by formally dressed gentlemen. The reason the painting took six years is Stanford would instruct Hill to add or subtract individuals or move them within the scene. Stanford liked the final painting, but his prominence in the center of the scene and the absence of the thousands of laborers who actually built the railroad speaks volumes.

Southern Pacific's Los Angeles to New York train, the Sunset Limited

Sam Hyde Harris was a successful commercial and fine art painter from Los Angeles, and he is well known for his enticing and stylized commercial posters.

The California State Railroad Museum displays a extremely large Sam Hyde Harris painting of a speeding locomotive having just left Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara Mission backed by idyllic Southern California mountains is pictured as the speeding powerful locomotive gains speed its way along to coast toward Los Angeles.

Railroads often advertised their passenger service with locomotives powerfully traversing western terrain, and Sam provided railroads with enticing advertising posters drawing the interest of easterners to visit the wonders of California and the West. The painting below originally hung in the Santa Barbara train depot, and now graces the lobby of the museum's theater.

Joshua Meador and the Meredith Fish Comany Joshua Meador
& the Meredith Fish Company

Sometimes, landscape artists can capture a bit of history.

There it was again ... the name "Meredith" in a painting by Joshua Meador. We had seen the same name in a Meador painting before.

A couple of years ago, we sold a Bodega Bay scene by Joshua Meador entitled "Bodega Dock." Written on the side of the dock was the name "Meredith," painted by Meador in the early 1950's. Now we have come across the name "Meredith" again, this time in a Meador painting entitled "Waiting at Noyo," the fishing harbor north of Bodega Bay in Fort Bragg.

visited Bodega Bay in the late 1940's and early 1950's
while on hiatus from the Walt Disney Studios.

Meredith Wharf June 2013
Today, the Spud Point Marina services the Bodega Bay fishing fleet,
while the former Meredith Wharf is visibly dissolving into history.

If it weren't for films, magazine archives, and paintings, once familiar brands of the past might be forgotten. But painters like Joshua Meador have helped preserve an era by including the familiar names, buildings and places of their day.

From 1936 until 1965, Joshua Meador was Director of Animated Effects for the Walt Disney Studios. During some of those years, Josh was a regular visitor to Bodega Bay. He would drive north from Los Angeles with his wife Libby and son Philip in their wood-paneled station wagon pulling their teardrop trailer. Once in Sonoma County, Josh busied himself with his greatest love, plein air painting. He painted breaking waves and rocky coasts, harbor scenes, coastal farm scenes and among our collection, we have Sonoma County scenes of Duncans Mills, the town of Bodega, and Sonoma Square.

Philip recalled that these were special times for Josh and Libby, and their love of the Coast lead them to open a gallery in Carmel Highlands and later build their sea-cliff dream house, studio and gallery in Caspar, just north of Mendocino.

Aiken's Grocery Store, circa 1950
Candy and Kites June 2013
Today, Candy and Kites

Like all good campers, we're certain Joshua Meador had to replenish supplies, and was probably a customer at Diekman's and Aiken's Grocery grocery stores. Above are photos of Aiken's Grocery much as it would have appeared when Josh visited Bodega Bay, and the same building today, home of Candy and Kites. From our perspective, it would have been nice if an artist had produced a painting of Aiken's Grocery back in the day with busy locals coming and going. But back then, no one seems to have had such a thought -- it was just the place to go to buy a quart of milk, a dozen eggs and a pound of coffee.

In a similar fashion, another of our gallery's paintings by artist Elmer Stanhope captures a rather utilitarian scene of the Palladinis Fish Company. (Palladini's was next to Meredith Fish Co. in Noyo Harbor.)

I doubt if Joshua Meador or Elmer Stanhope considered that they were preserving an echo of history for the ages. But for us looking back, we are glad they did, and the richer we are for their efforts. Below are some of Joshua Meador's scenes done in Sonoma County, preserving for us all how it once was.

They stood up for a free coast, opposing the placement of Iron Rangers skimming 8 bucks from each car seeking a brief visit to park on Bodega Head and take in the view. If this proposal ever comes to pass, it would probably be cheaper per hour to park in front of the State Capitol in Sacramento. Well done Supes!
