An American Impressionist: The Art and Life of Alson Skinner Clark

This marks the first museum retrospective of Alson Skinner Clark (1876–1949), an important American Impressionist painter. Clark settled in Pasadena, California in 1919 after spending time in New York, Chicago, and France studying with artists such as William Merritt Chase and James Whistler. His far-flung travels and encounters with other artists make him one of the more cosmopolitan American painters. Organized by the Pasadena Museum of California Art and guest curator Dr. Deborah E. Solon, the exhibition has already traveled to the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, SC.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Pasadena Arts Commission, the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division, and Paul and Kathleen Bagley.
