DESCRIPTION

Curator Marian Yoshiki-Kovinick leads a tour. This exhibition brings together the work of husband and wife Edouard and Luvena Vysekal and focuses on how the two became emblematic of modernism in a conservative art community, opening the door to an avant-garde aesthetic. While Edouard’s work in watercolor and oils of landscapes, cityscapes, nudes, still lifes, portraits, and allegorical subjects ranged from Impressionism and Post Impressionism to semi-abstraction, Luvena’s portraits and still lifes in oils hewed closer to Realism. Together, they participated in exhibitions as members of the early progressive art organizations in Los Angeles, as well more traditional art clubs, gaining respect from modern and conservative critics and audiences alike.
