Event Information

The Cantor Arts Center is the primary repository of paintings and sketches by the early twentieth-century California artist, Rex Slinkard, who survived military service in World War I but succumbed to the influenza epidemic of 1918. During his too¬–brief life he emerged from his roots as a California rancher to become a painter who helped influence the modernist bent of the nascent California art scene. Slinkard studied with Robert Henri and shared a studio with George Bellows in New York City, returning to paint and teach in Los Angeles where he established personal contacts with well-known people in the worlds of visual and literary arts. This selection of oil paintings, charcoal drawings, and small pen-and-watercolor sketches was/has been chosen for visual strength and to convey the breadth of his short-lived artistic development and his range of subject matter.
