William Wendt (American, 1865-1946)


Birth Place: Germany (Europe)

William Wendt is one of California's best known landscape painters and aptly named the "Dean of California Artists." Active in California after 1906, Wendt was a founding member of the California Art Club, which promoted the plein-air style of painting that lent itself so well to the rugged landscape of the west coast. Having embraced Impressionism in the 1890s, Wendt's style progressed from an early feathery brushstroke to what some critics have termed a bold "masculine" interpretation of Impressionism. His mature work is characterized by strong brushwork and boldness of line, qualities evident in his canvas California Mountains. Wendt was recognized in 1912 for his immense talent and elected an Associate of the National Academy of Design in New York.
