Guy Rose (1867-1925), perhaps the most important of the California Impressionist painters, is represented by two spectacular works: The Green Parasol, painted in Giverny, France, circa 1909; and Laguna Eucalyptus, painted in 1916, the signature painting of his visits to Laguna Beach.

Additionally, Masterpieces of California Art displays large and significant works by such master California Impressionist painters as Franz A. Bischoff (1864-1929), Alson S. Clark (18761949), Colin Campbell Cooper (1856-1937), John Frost (1890-1937), Anna Hills (1882-1930), Joseph Kleitsch (1862-

/LOS ANGELES LACMA, Picasso and His Printers, picasso’s prodigious output of prints, spanning all seven decades of his career, is characterized by constant experimentation and technical ingenuity. different printmaking techniques fueled his creative energy, as each method presented distinct means and possibilities for expression. the stimulus and support picasso received from his master printers were critical to his exploration of graphic art. his first decades of drypoints and etchings tend toward more conventional applications of technique—but in the mid-1930s, the artist adopted a radically new and bold approach when he began his close association with the printer roger lacourière. similarly, in his later collaborations with the printers Fernand mourlot in lithography and hidalgo arnéra in linocut, picasso pressed the boundaries of what could be realized in each medium. through his cooperative work with printers, picasso sustained his lifelong commitment to innovating techniques, often through unorthodox methods. largely drawn from lacma’s collection, picasso and his printers celebrates the great achievements of these vital collaborations, (through 11/27) lacma.org

doug aitken has shifted the perception and location of images and narratives. his multichannel video installations, sculptures, photographs, publications, happenings, and architectural works demonstrate the nature and structure of our evermobile, ever-changing, image-based contemporary condition. rooted in interdisciplinary collaborations, and the broad availability of images and the vulnerability of individuals, aitken’s work accounts for the cool but relentless human, industrial, urban, and environmental entropy that defines 21st-century existence. Doug Aitken: Electric Earth, aitken’s first north american survey, is organized as a full collaboration and dialogue with the artist. the exhibition unfolds around the major moving-image installations that articulate his thematic interest in environmental and post-industrial decay, urban abandonment, and the exhaustion of linear time, (through 1/15/17) moca.org

Bosch’s paintings are a true representation of her vantage point on life and the world. Taking bits of inspiration from all the places she has lived and traveled to, and finding her own voice through a bold and bright painterly style, her impressionistic approach allows her to paint from the eyes of her soul instead of from observation alone. She told us she has always felt compelled to communicate through paint, and color, and has found true fulfillment in creating her art. “Art is alive and the thought of my art being a continuous voice in people’s lives, excites and motivates me.”

Because of her passion for life and people, her observational skills are bar none. She loves to paint scenes, and places that have a human imprint, a human connection, or show both the natural and the manmade world in one scene. Looking at her portfolio as a whole, her paintings range in content, from rural city streets, farmlands, solitary houses in the countryside, beach towns and sunsets, boats on the water, or gorgeous old trees standing tall near a farm. All of her scenes have one thing in common—the human influence—evidence or relics of humanity on a place.

My paintings are reminders of this beauty,” she tells us. till exploring and discovering her new home in California, her passion for life seems endless, and she finds constant inspiration in the beauty of California’s landscapes, harbors, and rural towns.

art history

Iconically

Ours...

Andy WARHOL by Joy Shannon

H

Heralded by critics as one of the most important American artists of the 20th century, the mixed media artist Andy Warhol left an unforgettable mark on our culture. Reflecting and embracing the consumerism of the post-war years, Warhol forever changed how we look at the items, like Campbell's soup cans, that we consume. Under Warhol's paradigm-shifting influence, suddenly the common items became art and, simultaneously, what art is was questioned. Even Warhol's life itself can be viewed as a work of art, in which he embodied the epitome of the American Dream. He came from humble beginnings in Pittsburg, born to immigrant parents, and rose to dominate the art scene in New York City, with his art-producing Factory. Realizing his goal to be like his own version of a Hollywood star-making factory, Warhol's Factory churned out his signature screen prints, often of celebrities, along with films featuring his starlets, the band the Velvet Underground, and Andy Warhol by Greg Gorman, 1986

the scene magazine Interview. Warhol’s life eerily mimicked American pop culture so much that, during the historically violent year of 1968, his celebrity was so huge that he had an assassination attempt made on his life, by the radical feminist Valerie Solanas. After being left permanently injured and shaken this life-threatening incident, Warhol still produced huge amounts of work up until his death in 1987. It was during this time that Warhol produced his highly-commercial celebrity portraits, along with the thematically-varied pieces including his Self-Portraits, Oxidation Paintings, various religious pieces, Rorschach paintings, and collaborations with young Neo-Expressionist painters including Jean-Michel Basquiat. Warhol’s last two decades of diverse work have been criticized for lacking the same focus as his pivotal work during the 1960s; criticism of which Warhol was acutely aware and may have fed into his prolific quest to keep exploring painting. Of this period, art critic David Carrier stated in artcritical that "this once radical innovator successfully pursued the rich and famous, and devoted too much attention to the journalistic record of his social life." New York Times art critic Roberta Smith claimed that during this era, Warhol seemed to “assume the role of genius in decline or at least semiretirement.” While Warhol lived as his celebrity personality during this era, he received criticism that he “accepted too many commissions” and churned out artwork “that diluted the Warhol brand.” Though, when considering the mysterious Andy Warhol, one could argue that that could have been all part of his grand artistic vision of reflecting American pop culture. Yet, perhaps something even deeper was going on for the artist. Liz, 1964

Andy Warhol

art successes and experimenting with abstraction and expressionism. For example, Warhol revisited his famous Marilyn Monroe image in 1978, creating stark, ghostly black and white versions, sans his signature striking colors. Meanwhile, he created vivacious and expressive painted silk-screened prints, entitled “Abstract Painting,” which exude an emotional quality with their fluid brushstrokes.

A

Additionally, Warhol’s subject matter during this era had a bleakness to it, reflecting the dark underbelly of American history, or perhaps eluding to the victims of the American Dream. Pieces like “Portraits of the Jews of the 20th Century,” “American Indian,” “Dollar Signs,” “Knives,” “Guns,” “Athletes,” and “Torsos” elude to exploitation and violence, when viewed as a body of work. Warhol’s late self portraits, as seen in his 1978 “Self-Portrait (Strangulation),” likewise seem to delve deeper into exploring his own inner demons than his “aloof” self-portraits of the 1960s. Perhaps it was the physical and emotional

trauma from the assassination attempt upon the artist that led him to delve into these reflections upon mortality. Warhol famously revealed very little about himself, as seen in his early interviews in which he either only replied with “Umm yes” or Umm no” or let others speak for him. This elusive personality trait, leaves art historians with an immense amount of guess-work at the thought process behind his works. But years after the artist himself is gone and the dust has settled from the flurry of pop culture criticism around him while he lived, it has been boldly claimed that his late works are his best. Art critic Roberta Smith alleges that perhaps the artist was “spurred by his sensitivity to criticism, by the example of younger painters he had influenced and perhaps by his own boredom, he became more fully himself as a painter, retrieving and expanding upon parts of his sensibility left behind in his rush to become Andy Warhol, Pop artist.” Perhaps even deeper than this, Warhol was furiously working to leave behind his legacy, after being so starkly faced with his own mortality. And if this legacy is varied, unpredictable, elusive and even dark, perhaps it is a true reflection upon American culture itself.

Richard MacDonald to unveil Duality Nov 12 & 13 at Dawson Cole Fine Art Richard MacDonald (American, b.1946), internationally acclaimed figurative sculptor, is opening a new exhibition of his work inspired by the theme of Richard MacDonald

Masterful sculptors of every era and culture move into the complex field of multiple figure compositions to explore the full emotional range possible when figures interact. MacDonald has been exploring the complex visual, aesthetic, and conceptual relationships of multiple figures throughout his career, and the newest work Duality highlights a theme that runs through the diverse collection. MacDonald will be present at Dawson Cole Fine Art in Laguna on Nov. 12 & 13 to unveil the new Duality in bronze, as well as several new works, including two heroic, larger-thanlife-sized, works. pg 4, www.dawsoncolefineart.com
