November's featured object is located in Lauritzen Gallery 9  

Thomas Hill (American, 1829-1908)
Mountain Scene, 1892
Oil on canvas
Gift of the Friends of Art Collection, 1932.13 
The premier landscape artist in nineteenth-century California, Hill did not move permanently to his adopted state until he was in his forties. For three decades thereafter he painted majestic vistas of the Sierras and the Pacific coast. He maintained a cabin in the mountains and traveled widely, directly experiencing the scenic grandeur he depicted, although - like Bierstadt, Moran, and other Western artists of the period - it was more likely Hill's intent to interpret nature, not to replicate it.

Following the gallery talk guests will enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by Hap Abraham Catering. Check back soon for menu details!
