Art of the Gold Rush

October 30, 1998 – March 7, 1999

Museum: American Art Museum

Location: 1st Floor, Gallery 1-A

Some 65 paintings, watercolors, and drawings of images of the California Gold Rush of 1848 focus on this period in American history. Parallels and contrasts between portraiture, landscape, and narrative paintings created in California and artwork produced in the East reveal the development of California as a regional art center.

Organized by the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, CA.
