Early California Masters
Paintings from the Katherine A. Norris Legacy Collection

November 12, 2021 – December 19, 2021

Location: American Legacy Fine Arts

We are thankful for the foresight of art enthusiast Katherine A. Norris (1958–2011) in assembling this collection of exemplary paintings created by premiere masters of Plein Air Painting and California Impressionism. It is an honor that American Legacy Fine Arts was chosen to exhibit and represent the collection.

The works were selected with care to exemplify the unique style and subjects that best embody the oeuvre of each artist in the collection. Some of the artwork was represented through the private Newport Beach art gallery, Katherine Norris Fine Art, while others were retained for Mrs. Norris’ own personal collection. While the subject matters differ, the three main criteria for the collection are that the artwork should represent a sense of discovery, convey tranquility, and be created by a California resident artist.
