    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.

    http://www.hagginmuseum.org/

    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.

    For the people who are going to go, you are allowed to take pictures, but no flash, and you need to sign in at the front desk. It was really quite a treat to see these in person. Unfortunatlet these pics don't do any justice to how beautiful these paintings really are. It was also really cool to see Leyendecker's childhood drawings. Not an event to miss. You will hate yourself for it later!

    Oh, thanks for posting those pics! I didn't even know Leyendecker existed until I went last Saturday - dear lord, what have I been missing? I love how he dapples his shadows with streaks of light, almost like a venetian blind filter, it seems like it shouldn't work, but it does. That museum is a real gem, I wish it were a little closer though - Stockon is so in the middle of nowhere!

    And for the record, I fell in love with the stylization of the flying pigeon that was in the last pic you submitted. I didn't have a chance to sketch it but I wish I had >_<

    I saw the show this last weekend, and it was inspiring. My friend Josh and I drove 5 or 6 hours to see it, and it was unbelievably worth it. The exhibit even has a student painting Leyendecker did of his brother. The Haggin Museum also has an amazing Bougereau painting, some Jean Leon Jerome pieces, and other neat stuff. Every serious artist owes it to themselves to find this show!

    well, kinda. The colors and compositions look like early Rockwell because Rockwell idolized the bejeesus out of him. If you look at JC's stuff closely, you'll see stylization and simplification that Rockwell never even touched. If that weren't enough, he's also wicked awesome in every way.

    Thanks for the pics everyone... my last trip to New York was the first time I had a chance to see a Leyendecker in person. Would have loved to make it to this show.
