There is an exhibition at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art up right now that works in tandem with the "London Calling" British Art Exhibition at the Getty Museum (on view until Nov 13, 2016). The Santa Barbara show focuses on British art from Whistler to WWII, which is exactly where the Getty show takes off. It's well worth the visit.

These Eyvind Earle landscapes (1970-96) we the gems of the show for me. They seem to be glowing from within.

This is an Inspirational exhibition. Claire Falkenstein was a California artist who worked in many mediums, but I especially enjoyed seeing her paintings. The influence of the lanscape on nature on her work was so nice to see, especially in the painting of Yosemite. I also work closely from and with nature and it's always lovely to see how another artist does something along the same lines, yet different. Also her use of silver and other metallic paints, how they move and shimmer in the light, were great to see.

There is a gem of a show at the Getty right now, called London is Calling. It's about post-war art in London, focused on six artists: Bacon, Freud, Kossoff, Andrews, Auerbach, and Kitaj.
This is Michael Andrews' "Thames Painting, the Estuary", 1994-5. The wall label reads: "... On a trip to Canvey Island in Essex he made sketches, notes, and photographs of lugworm diggers and men fishing. These figures and a group taken from a photograph of late Victorians standing on the end of a Thames jetty are positioned looking out to sea, giving scale to the painting. Sand and ash are mixed with the oil paint, adding to the strong sense of place."
This is a show not to be missed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. April 24-September 11, 2016.
