"Main Beach" by Joseph Kleitsch, Private Collection

California artist Joseph Kleitsch (1882-1931) moved to the burgeoning art colony of Laguna Beach in 1920. Already an established portrait and plein air painter, Kleitsch became enchanted with Laguna and would go on to create numerous paintings of the seaside village and its surroundings.

The Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA), in conjunction with the Laguna Art Museum’s exhibition “Joseph Kleitsch: Abroad and at Home in Old Laguna,” is delighted to bring “Inspired by Joseph Kleitsch” to the LPAPA Gallery celebrating the past, present and future of California Impressionism.
