At Crocker Art Museum 216 O Street , 95814 , Sacramento , California , USA


This is the first museum exhibition to survey the work of early California artist Jules Tavernier (1844–1889). Born in Paris and trained in France, Tavernier adapted his native country's Barbizon aesthetic to scenes of the American West. This exhibition surveys the artist's entire career through 100 paintings and works on paper, from his early transcontinental illustrations for "Harper's Weekly" and paintings of Native American subjects to scenes of the San Francisco Bay Area and Monterey Peninsula, where he founded the local art colony in 1875.
