    J.C. Leyendecker at the Haggin Museum - Stockton, CA

    Stumbled on this while I was looking for old Leyendecker pieces for inspiration. For those who are coming to Insomnia, if you have access to a car, Stockton is about an hour and a half drive away from San Francisco. With over fifty pieces on display, it's more than worth the trip. The show's already a month into its run, but will continue through the end of the year.

    If anyone has already been to the show, I'd love to hear more. Thanks.

    It's fuckin great! Saw it last weekend... if there's anyway people can get to it, you gotta do it. The permanent collection is surprisingly good at the museum as well... Bouguereau & a good amount of Geromes.

    That Leyendecker guy... oh man, he good.

    yeah I saw this too. I was looking at his work for inspiration.
    I will be in California around that time so I think I might make it. I'm on a serious Leyendecker kick these days, ever since I saw one of his studies at the Society of Illustrators for the last AOL. I was stareing at that painting for such a long time. That guy is so brilliant. Check out some of his studies I have just found. The old man's head is insane.
    click on the image, it gets bigger, so you can see some awesome detail. Nothing like getting you hyped to see the real thing, huh.

    Crazy story: I know a guy from a collectors site that said when he and his brother were little they would take BB Gun shots of a painting his father bought at a flea market and stuck in the basement. You guessed it, it was a JC. He said there were two paintings and that one was repairable. They had it restored and auctioned it off for a pretty penny.

    How come my family never finds a lyndecker in the basement!

    Wow that is a crazy story..... on the offchance that my work is ever picked up at a flea market when I'm long gone, I think I'll make it easy on the restoration guys by sticking to bulletproof canvas.

    And thanks for the review, Cody.

    Who in their right mind would shoot a Leyendecker!!!! Damn those meddling kids!


    Sometimes I get so emotional looking at his work.
    It's a mixture of super excitement, Awe!, sadness, and envy.
    I wish I was him.

    I know of a guy that paints exactly like him.
    I mean......exactly.
    When I first saw his paintings, I thought they were Leyendecker's originals.
    He doesnt have a site, but I'll see if I can get some pics of his stuff.
    The guy is obsessed with Leyendecker and knows everything about him.( he's been painting like him for 5-7 yrs. or so)
    He's studied everything there is to know about him.
    He's even gotten to the point where he's counting the amount of strokes he uses per color to try and match Leyendecker down to perfection.

    I agree.
    We've told him to paint his own way,
    or to incorporate what he's learned into painting and drawing differently but he refuses to. Oh well.
