Illustrating Modern Life Gallery Opening

This past Saturday, I attended the 'Illustrating Modern Life' Gallery Opening at Pepperdine University!

I was eager to see an original Leyendecker up close. I wanted to see his brush strokes and the true colors on the canvas. I only know his art from old magazines and 80 year old posters. It did not disappoint! The larger size paintings looked bright and well cared for, having been in one man's collection for years.
There were also originals by N.C. Wyeth and Dean Cornwell and I loved the Pen and Ink illustrations on display. If you are going to be anywhere near Malibu, Ca, visit the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art and see the exhibit. It's worth it!
