David Ligare masterfully promotes Classical ideals as relevant to modern life, employing the captivating natural light of the Californian coast. It includes over 200 reproductions and photographs as well as revelatory essays. It coincides with the exhibition David Ligare: California Classicist at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. David Ligare's paintings of figures, landscapes, architectural subjects and still lifes are permeated by the lessons of antiquity. These exquisitely executed works of art are also decidedly contemporary, promoting Classical ideals as relevant to modern life and featuring California light and land. Setting subjects within the specifics of California - and the Monterey Peninsula region in particular - he bathes them in the pure and wondrous light of the coast. Such a beautiful locale provides a convincingly glorious backdrop for subjects that are richly layered, broadly universal and even conceptual. This publication, released in conjunction with the exhibition organized by the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, (running from 7 June to 20 September 2015), evinces Ligare's admiration for the ancients and his love of California through revelatory essays, a chronology and more than 200 reproductions and photographs.
