Wendy Willrich Collection
Made it to the newly and radically remodeled DeYoung for the last day of the "California Impressionists" show. It wasnt fantastic but I always enjoy looking at some Edgar Paynes- they had a couple Bierstadts and I learnt a few new names of turn of the century plein air artists that I hadnt heard of. Favorites included- Alson Skinner Clark, Marion Kavanagh Wachtel, and Thaddeus Whelch. The one Alson S. Clark was by far my favorite. They have such great Modern Fine Art shows in there, and I cant wait for them to get some A list painting shows as well- hopefully very soon in the future.
