Individuality and Strength Re=
vealed in 26 Paintings
W. F. Jackson Ventures Into
New Field and Marshland
Scene Is Product
Katharine Clark Prosser
The longr heralded Redmond exhibi
tion has come and the paintings of
which there are 26, are hung in the
Helffesen galleries in Sutler rtr«*t
They will remain on display until
Christmas eve.
The -work of Gvamille Redmond
shows individuality and strength, and
he lays on his pigments with a keen
technical knowledge. There is atmos
phere and feeling In his canvases. In
the matter of color his present dis
play shows a tendency toward a low
key and his pictures are handled in an
exquisite harmony of tones.
The g-ems of the collection are a
couple of marines, in the painting: of
which Redmond has shown himself In
a new light, these two being his first
attempt at sea studies. The larger of
the two is- simple in its treatment,
showing a stretch of inrolling -waves
under a dull gray sky. The entire
scene is cast in a lilac tone, the -white
nests of the breakers giving the only
hint of light to the whole. Its beauty
is irrefutable and stamps its author
a* one of the foremost American paint-
Phe smaller of the two !s very
similar to the one just described and
is treated in the same sympathetic
There are a couple of March scenes
-which are remarkably good. There are
also a number of oak pictures, which
?re particularly fine, and a group of
liny landscape sketches, which are
jewel like in their brilliancy.
W. 1". Jackson has rightly been called
the painter of flowers. After three
years of continuous study of the fields
of California, he lias come to be known j
at home and abroad for his exquisite
wild flower pictures. Most of his work
lias been devoted to a portrayal of the
fragile, golden poppy, but during the
last year he has branched out and in
• h.uled many and various flowers of
•id forest in blfl paintings.
His latest departure has 1 taken him
on a tour of the marshes around Sui-
Bun and an interesting example of his
more recent work is on exhibition in
lh« galleries nf Rabjohn & Morcom in
street. The canvas is a large one
and presents a stretch of marshland.
In the background rises a low rugged
Mil, jufct a hint of sunlight striking Its
barren slopes, while the flat swamp
spreading out in all directions la liter
ally carpeted in a golden mat of flow
< rs. Through its midst runs a broad
shallow stream, its waters carrying the
reflection of many shadows.
Jackson is a Sacramento man. But
1 hough his* permanent studio is located
in the capital, he is continually on the
move and spends much of his time
around the bay cities.
Among 1 the most interesting art ex
hibitions of the year are those which
have appeared from time to time under
the auspices of the Century club in
FYanklin street. "Art for art's sake"
has been the motto on these occasions,
and the art interest has been con
sistently fostered. The displays have
been arranged with a view tdward up
holding the highest standard, and as a
result have drawn before their canvases
the most fastidious of the city's art
The first of these combined a number j
nf pictures which originally appeared \
5n the Paris spring salon. These were J
followed up by a display of colored
etchings of remarkable beauty. The I
next exhibition was a loan exhibit of
miniatures culled from private eollec- j
tions, and among the more recent I
events was an exposition of the minia- |
tures of Miss Mary Helen Carlisle, the |
English artist. Last Wednesday a
*roup of Miss Carlisle's pastels were \
shown in conjunction with Miss Maren j
Froellch's salon picture "The Chinese!
Robe," The latter was first hung in I
the spring exhibition of the Paris salon
Ifcl 1910.
It is the present intention to continue
these exhibitions from time to time
throughout the year.
Carl Jonnevold Is showing a small
collection of paintings in the Rabjohn t
& Morcom galleries in Post street which
la well worth seeing. One of the oils
presents a marine handled in gray '
tones. A stretch of wide, fiat beach is I
shown, with incoming shallow waves. j
In the distance, half obscured by the
rolling, whitecapped breakers, msy ho. I
seen the sails of a small ship. Over- I
nead the moon, half hidden In a gray j
cloudbank, casts a shimmering lane of
light over the water.
Another pleasing thing is a bit of!
level green country with a narrow little ■
lane running through it. To the left
appears a clump of slim, feathery
topped trees, while overhead the sky is i
broken up into masses of. billowing I
white clouds, with here and there a
patch of blue breaking, through.
A shallow ravine is the subject for
his largest canvas, its sloping sid^s |
showing a thick carpet of shrubbery
and grass. In the foreground is a little I
pool, whose surface is bright with re- I
fleeted light, while the bottom of the
hollow is overgrown with a mass of
low trees. A group, of cows may be
seen grazing on the slope. The sky, its
blue'almost obliterated: by the masses ;
of cloud climbing up from the horizon i
betokens the approaching storm
■ '•■•'/ * 45- * " '
In the same gallery is a new canvas
from the brush of F. L. Heath, the I
Santa Cruz artist. The picture is a
largo one.. and depicts a spot in the
heart of the forest. Through the pir
ture runs a pathway bordered by huge
towering redwoods.. while a touch of
sunlight flittering through the branches
lends a golden radiance to the scene
