New Acquisition by Hanson Puthuff
We're proud to announce the Jonathan Club's latest acquisition, Verdugo Woodlands (circa 1930s and 1940s) by Hanson Puthuff (1875-1972). Verdugo Woodlands is the fourth Puthuff painting to be exhibited at the Town Club, where it joins Winter’s Gold, Purple Majesty, and Portrait of George Alexander, the latter depicting the president of the Jonathan Club from 1894 to 1895. Puthuff was a guiding light in California’s art scene, helping to form the California Art Club and the Laguna Beach Art Association and we are thrilled to have such a landmark painting in the collection.
Jonathan Art Foundation Virtual Docent Tour
In response to the social distancing restrictions of the covid crisis of 2020-21, JAF created a virtual docent tour of art at the Jonathan Club. This video is expertly hosted by past and present JAF presidents Rich Reitzell, Judy Jenkins, and Dale-Harbour Day. We thank the University of Irvine School of Social Sciences and Ashley Media for their support on this project.
