JAF is proud to announce its latest acquisition, A Homestead Hidden (1938) by William Wendt (1865-1946). Known as the “Dean of Southern California,” Wendt was one of the most prominent and respected artists of the early 20th century California Impressionists.  Adding this artist to our collection is an important step toward establishing one of the finest plein air collections on the West Coast.

The Jonathan Club is a proud lender of its painting Mountain Glacier by Jack Wilkinson Smith (1873-1949) to the UCI Jack & Shanaz Langson Institute & Museum of California Art for its exhibition Echoes of Perception: Peter Alexander and California Impressionism. Prior to his untimely death in 2020, Alexander had begun identifying works that he felt exemplified the California Impressionists’ profound connection to the light, space, and natural phenomena of California and the similar influence they had on his own work. The exhibition will be on view from September 24 to January 14, 2023.
