One of the recurring themes in California art over the past century is the relationship between abstraction and landscape. Particularly in Southern California, a deep schism opened up in the 1930s between naturalist landscape painters and those of a more modernist inclination, and the breach has never entirely healed. This exhibition, drawn entirely from OCMA’s collection, explores ways in which artists from the West Coast have played a role in transforming landscape into abstraction and then back again.
