The Californian Impressionist Show In Context:

Paradise Found: Summer in California features a selection of paintings by California Impressionists that show various familiar views of California as they appeared nearly a century ago, before the great population growth of the late twentieth century.

Starting in the early 1900s, Southern California became a popular destination for impressionist and plein-air painters. A French expression, which means “in the open air,” plein-air is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. The mild climate in California allowed for numerous opportunities to paint outdoors, and a rich variety of subject matter, ranging from expansive beaches, to snow-capped mountains, to desert, and to rolling hills, was within one day’s travel.
