JC is a proud lender to the Crocker Art Museum

The Jonathan Club kindly lent one of its most treasured paintings from its collection, "California Landscape--Oaks and Meadow," to the exhibition Granville Redmond: The Eloquent Palette at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. This painting was exhibited in the highly selective Louisiana Purchase exhibition at St. Louis in 1904. The following year the Club, under the leadership of then-president Henry Huntington, purchased the painting--quite likely from the artist himself.

This magnificent retrospective, Granville Redmond: The Eloquent Palette, is currently traveling to the Laguna Art Museum, where it will be on view from June 28 to September 20.

JAF lends paintings to Art Center exhibition "SKY"

The Jonathan Art Foundation lent two paintings from its collection, "Monterey Coast" by Angel Espoy and Albert DeRome's "Alisomar Dunes," to the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery's current exhibition SKY at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

Curated by the gallery's Director of Exhibitions Stephen Nowlin, the exhibition examines how humans have conceptualized the sky throughout history and demonstrates how the unfolding realities exposed by new science are affecting change in the understanding of ourselves, our planet and beyond. Blending history with contemporary science and philosophy, other exhibition contributors include The Caltech Archive, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the European Space Agency and artists Rebeca Mendez and Lia Halloran, among others. 


SKY is on view through August 23, 2020.
