This volume showcases 200 works by California Art Club artists who have focused on the evocative seascapes, charming seaside towns, and beach communities from San Diego to San Francisco, demonstrating a breathtaking range of natural settings suffused with atmosphere, drama, and light. Since the dawn of the twentieth century, California has been home to artists from all over America and Europe who aspired to depict the state s compelling natural landscapes on canvas. In 1909, these artists founded the California Art Club, which stands today as one of the most esteemed painting societies in the United States. This volume, which follows Skira Rizzoli s luminous California Light: A Century of Landscapes, presents more of the club s distinctive and lush plein air painting, an impressionistic style in which painters work outdoors in order to capture the ephemeral moment when the natural lighting of a landscape elevates an already beautiful scene into something sublime. As observed by W.H. Auden, Thousands have lived without love, not one without water. We as a species are drawn to the sea artists perhaps even more so than others, as beautifully evidenced in this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Artists have been coming to California to paint along its coast since the late 1860s. Among the earliest painters to capture its pristine shores, charming seaside towns, and magnificent views were Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran. Their works grace are among the 200 that grace the new 276-page book "Painting California: Seascapes and Beach Towns," the second in a series about the century-old California Art Club."
