    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.
