William Wendt 1865 - 1946
"Where Nature's God Hath Wrought 1925
Oil on canvas 50 1/2 in. x 60 in.

Wendt summarized his own penchant for grandeur, for experiencing in nature the fundamentals of life's processes, at a time when he was keenly aware of the destruction being wreaked by California's rampant development. Wendt, Braun, and a number of their colleagues continued to focus on such pristine views; recording society's changes and the damaged landscape was not, for them, within the purview of art.
