Linda Sorensen has long been intrigued by patterns and flow in both clouds and landscape.

On recent trips to Arizona, she was fascinated by quickly moving blue shadows as the sun and clouds moved across the sky, projecting magic on the ancient red sculptured canyon walls.

Two of our gallery's best Grand Canyon paintings are Gods of the Deep 1950 by Carl Hoerman (1885-1955) and Grand Canyon (1931) by Grace Fountain (1858-1942).

Carl Hoerman
was a Chicago architect who is well known for his Grand Canyon paintings. This painting is published on page 161 of Shadows on the Mesa by Gary Filmore of the Blue Coyote Gallery in Cave Creek, Arizona. Grace Fountain painted monumental landscapes of the Cascades, the Sierras and the Grand Canyon.

A large Grand Canyon by Grace Fountain was exhibited at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.

Conrad Buff had a most unique style, reducing landscape to simple color and shape. It shouldn't be surprising that he was a good friend and painting partner of Maynard Dixon and was a regular visitor to Dixon's Utah home.

Conrad's wife Mary was an award winning author of children's books, illustrated by Conrad. Conrad Mary Buff were close friends of Libby and Joshua Meador.

Ralph Love maintained his studio and taught art in Temecula, California. We are pleased to offer some of his paintings. Although Ralph was mostly self taught, he spent some time studying with fellow artist Sam Hyde Harris.

Ralph had an amazing ability to capture shimmering desert light. His paintings can also be found at the Lee Youngman Galleries in Calistoga. Lee Youngman is Ralph Love's daughter.

Jimmy Swinnerton gained fame as a cartoonist for William Randolph Hearst. Hearst picked Jimmy and his classmate Maynard Dixon out of a San Francisco art school and put them to work. Jimmy became a pioneer of the newspaper comic strip. Then, in 1903, a life-threatening bout with tuberculosis caused Jimmy to leave New York for a sparsley populated place in the Mojave Desert called Palm Springs.

Jimmy revived and thrived in the desert and lived to be 99 years old. Today, he's known as a founding father of the California Desert School. He was a popular member of San Francisco's Bohemian Club.

In the February 2014 edition of "Casemate," a French magazine dedicated to French Comic art, artist Dominique Bertail wrote his thoughts on our gallery's Swinnerton painting "Smoke Tree Wash."Read more in our April 2014 issue.

In the late 1920's, John W. Hilton set up a gem shop and art gallery in Thermal, California, between Palm Springs and the Salton Sea. His studio was in the back room, and, due to his magnetic personality and knowledge of the desert, he persuaded friends to assist him as he taught himself to paint ... friends like Clyde Forsythe, Maynard Dixon, and Jimmy Swinnerton.

In turn, these artists brought their friends. Clyde Forsythe brought the great Russian immigrant painter Nicolai Fechin and on a different occasion, his old studiomate from New York, Norman Rockwell.

Other non-painting visitors hosted by Hilton at his humble desert lodgings in Thermal were Howard Hughes and General George Patton.

Hilton found success in the 1950's and moved to Twentynine Palms. There he often painted with his good friend and neighbor James Cagney. During golf visits to Palm Springs, he painted with another friend, President Eisenhower. Ike had a Hilton painting hanging on the Oval Office wall.

Walt Disney artist Joshua Meador is the star of our gallery and we are proud to represent his family's collection. Although Joshua Meador is best known for his paintings of the Pacific and scenes of Pacific Coast harbors and towns, he also painted

extensively in the Eastern Sierras near Lone Pine, the Mojave near Palm Springs and into the deserts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.

Josh graduated the Art Institute in Chicago in 1935. Because it was the middle of
the Great Depression and there was no work, he painted Post Office murals for the WPA. Then, in 1937, he submitted his portfolio to Walt Disney. Josh was hired as lead animator for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and remained as the Director of Animation Effects for Disney Studios until he died in 1965. Over his career, he was one of the directors of Fantasia and part of the Oscar winning animation effects team for Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

But Josh always thought of himself as a painter first. Disney, he often said, was just his day job. At the time of his death at age 54, he had built his dream home on the cliffs above Mendocino. He would return to the Disney Studios for special projects.

The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Bad News, Good News,
and a Great Challenge
President and Mrs. Obama with their daughters
taking some time out to visit a museum,
The Corcoran Gallery in January 2011.

The Bad News ... after nearly 150 years, The Corcoran Gallery is closing its doors. The Good News ... they're giving their marvelous collection to the National Gallery, and The Challenge ... what to do with all these wonderful paintings and pieces of art?

Washington's Corcoran Gallery, its second home in Washington D.C.
Renwick Gallery Washington DC
Today's Renwick Gallery, the Corcoran's first D.C. location, just across the street from the White House, a few doors down from Blair House.

The Corcoran Gallery of Art was founded in 1869 "for the perpetual establishment and encouragement of the Fine Arts." It was a private art museum, supported by an endowment by William Wilson Corcoran, the founder of Riggs Bank.

Its first location was directly behind the White House in the building which today houses the Renwick Gallery. By 1897, the museum had outgrown its initial building and moved to its present location, a grand Beaux-Arts design by Ernest Flagg. In recent years, the museum's ever expanding collection again needed more room to breathe. A proposal for an addition was offered, doubling the museum size with architecture by Frank Gehry. Unfortunately, funding problems ended that dream.

Although the Corcoran Gallery's goal was to collect and promote American art,
its collection included examples from some of the masters of French Realism and French Impressionism.

Finanical struggles have now casued the Corcoran Gallery to close its doors. After nearly a century and a half of exhibiting and promoting American Fine Art, the Corcoran Gallery will be no more. But, there is a silver lining.

Their impressive collection will now move to the National Gallery, a gift to all of us. In an agreement a year ago, the National Gallery has agreed to house and exhibit large parts of the collection while assisting in finding D.C. area homes for other pieces.

To date, the National Gallery has taken in 6,500 works.

The challenging task is monumental, one large museum acquiring another, and will involve many paintings being stored for a while. The National Gallery has a long standing policy of not deacquisitioning paintings. So, when the museum chooses to take in a painting, it is a forever decision. None of the works will be sold. Those not accepted into the National Gallery's collection will be donated to neighboring institutions.

Eugene Delacroix's Portrait of Charles de Verniac, c1826
newly acquired by SF's Legion of Honor
Portrait of Charles de Verniac, c 1826
Legion of Honor, San Francisco

So who is the handsome youg guy in this portrait?" He was Eugene Delacroix's nephew, just five years younger than Delacroix himself. They were more like brothers than uncle and nephew.

Eugene Delacroix, Self Portrait, 1837

Charles lived with Eugene while in Paris to study law, and "Uncle Eugene" served as his informal guardian. In 1829, Charles joined the dipolomatic service and was posted in Valparaiso, Chile. He took his portrait along with him to Chile and treasured it. On his way back to Paris in 1834, young Charles caught yellow fever and died in Vera Cruz, Mexico. His portrait has remained in American collections ever since.

As for Eugene Delacroix, he went on to become the leader of the French Romantic School. His paintings are praised for having an effect on art after his death in 1863. His expressive brushstrokes and optical effects of color helped shape the painting of the impressionists. His paintings done in North Africa were most exotic and were inspirational to artists of the Symbolist Movement.

When looking at the family tree of French painting, it is important to place Eugene Delacroix in his proper historical context. He was born in 1798, about a decade after the French Revolution. When he was 42 and already a thriving and successful painter, Claude Monet was born. He died in 1863, a time when the

impressionists were just gettting a foothold in Paris and long before their first exhibition. When Delacroix was born, President Washington was in the midst of his second term as President, and the year he died, Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.

Barque of Dante, 1822
Louvre Museum, Paris
In Delacroix's day, French painting was dominated by the Academie des Beaux-Arts. Their stiff standards strove to protect the status quo and excluded newer styles, methods and techniuqes. To get an idea of this rigidity, in the year of Delacroix's death, 1863, the Salon rejected Eduarde Manet's The Luncheon on the Grass.

A product of his times, he often painted classical themes, but branched out, doing illustrations for William Shakespeare plays and doing historical pieces, even of the new world.

Hamlet with Horatio, 1839

Les Natchez, 1835
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

La Liberte Guidant le Peuple, 1839, Louvre

Delacroix's most famous painting was Liberty Leading the People (1830), especially loved among the French. The image is of Parisians taking up arms under their colors representing liberty, equality and fraternity. The dead soldiers in are a poignant counterpoint to the female figure symbolizing liberty.

Before the Euro, a 1993 100 Franc Note
with an image of Eugene Delacroix

The boy holding the gun is thought to be the inspiration of the character Gavroche in Victor Hugo's 1862 novel, Les Miserables. Delacroix is consequently held in high esteem by his countrymen, and, before the Euro, his image was once used on the 100 Franc note.

From the Walt Disney short film "4 Artists Paint 1 Tree," first broadcast in 1958 featured four Disney artists, (left to right)
Joshua Meador, Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle and Walt Peregoy.

In Memorium, Disney Artist
Walt Peregoy 1925-2015

Walt Peregoy passed away at his home in Encino on Friday, January 16. Walt was born in Alameda and studied art at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Berkeley. When his family moved to LA in 1937, he continued his studies at the Chouinard Art Institute. At age 17 (1942), he went to work at Disney Studios as a "tweener," an animator who would fill in a scene "between" two completed cells. After three years in the Coast Guard during the war, Walt continued his art studies in Mexico and in Paris. In 1951, he returned to Disney where his emerging style was increasingly appreciated. He meshed well with Eyvind Earle, and the pair was nominated for their animation work on Disney's short film Paul Bunyan. In 1958 he joined his colleagues Joshua Meador, Eyvind Earle and Marc Davis for a short entitled "4 Artists Paint 1 Tree." The film was introduced and narrated by Walt Disney and featured the four artists demonstrating their individual painting techniques.

Apart from his professional work in animation, he was also an artist. He had one man shows at the
Stockton Museum, CA; The University of Santa Clara, CA; Galerie de Tour, San Francisco, CA; Rutherford Gallery, San Francisco, CA; Chouinard Art Institute, Los Angeles, CA; Landau Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Dickie Hall Gallery, Laguna, CA; Jack Carr Gallery, Pasadena, CA. He has also participated in group shows at the National Gallery of Art, the Library of Congress, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

Art Moment of the Day.

To the right is our Art Moment
for Friday, February 20, 2015
Joshua Meador loved the challenge of capturing the dynamic Pacific. This stunning work was discovered unfinished and unsigned in his studio after his death in 1965. Here near his northern California home just north of Mendocino, stormy waves break on Caspar Reef. Gallery visitors often comment on the color and movement, many calling it their favorite Meador painting.
