A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The paintings of Edwin Deakin--beautiful, romantic depictions of California's early architecture, particularly its missions, as well as picturesque and nostalgic scenes of California wilderness--are regarded as major achievements in early California art. Deakin's trip to Europe in 1877 also inspired breathtaking canvases, notably of Notre Dame in Paris and the Castle of Chillon on Lake Geneva. Later in Deakin's career, his brush captured the uniqueness of San Francisco's Chinatown and the destruction of the 1906 earthquake. Deakin (1838-1923) was equally gifted at still-life painting and produced magnificient compositions of fruits and flowers. Edwin Deakin: California Painter of the Picturesque is the first book to survey the artist's vast accomplishments, bringing together examples from all the genres in which he worked--including all twenty-one of his paintings of the California missions.

Born in Sheffield, England, Deakin first came to San Francisco in 1870. The next year he established a studio in the city and began exhibiting regularly. His later years were spent in Berkeley, where in 1890 he purchased a large tract of land and built a mission-style home. Today a street in Berkeley is named in his honor.

The Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California, developed this book in concert with an exhibition of the artist's paintings. Edwin Deakin has long been admired by aficionados of California art, but wider recognition of his accomplishments is overdue. This publication, with illuminating text by Alfred C. Harrison Jr., president of the The North Point Gallery, and Scott A. Shields, chief curator at the Crocker Art Museum, strives to further the painter's legacy as an important contributor to the canon of California--and American--art.

From the Publisher:

Edwin Deakin: California Painter of the Picturesque is the first comprehensive examination of the artist's diverse and extensive body of work, including Deakin's entire series of California mission paintings and nineteen rarely-seen-before paintings recently added to the Crocker collection. This book accompanies an exhibition opening at the Crocker Art Museum in January 2008.
