Antique California Tonalism & Impressionism Plein Air Oil Painting Mountains Louis Adams Great Colors

We are offering a beautiful antique oil painting of the foothills of a mountain in California. Done in the Plein Air method utilizing tonalism and impressionism. Beautiful warm colors of golds, olive green and blues in this gorgeous landscape. You just want to keep looking at it! So peaceful. Great smaller size for a powder room or with a grouping on a wall.

Framed in the 1950-1960's. Gold leaf wood frame with green highlights, Linen mat.

The California Impressionist artists depicted the California landscape — the foothills, mountains, seashores, and deserts of the interior and coastal regions. California Impressionism reached its peak of popularity in the years before the Great Depression. The California Plein-Air painters generally painted in a chromatic palette with "loose" painterly brush work that showed some influence from French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. These artists gathered in art colonies in places like Carmel-by-the-Sea and Laguna Beach as well as in cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Pasadena.
