Description:
William Wendt (1865-1946) Houses Along the Coast signed '·WILLIAM WENDT·' (lower left) oil on canvas 28 1/8 x 36in overall: 38 1/4 x 46in Footnotes Provenance Private collection, Southern California. Literature Will South, Jean Stern, Janet Blake, In Nature's Temple, The Life and Art of William Wendt, Irvine, 2008, p. 297, full page color illustration. William Wendt made several trips to Laguna Beach to sketch and paint while living in the Los Angeles area. He fell in love with the area and sought to buy a second home and studio somewhere along the Laguna coast. It was an idyllic and pristine location for his artistic theme, nature unhindered by urban encroachment. As he explored the coastline for a site to build his new home, one of the attractive locations was around Old Coast Road near Moss Point. As Wendt rounded the curve on Old Coast Road, in 1916, he was struck by the isolation of the area, a few scattered homes and trees near the cove at the water's edge. What certainly captured his attention was the crimson colored setting sun just before its descent below the horizon, leaving streaks of color on the blue water. Above, the teal blue sky was blanketed by this crimson color. The beauty and subtlety of this impressive scene that nature had painted left him with a strong desire to record it. The result was his most famous painting Old Coast Road, which set a record for the artist in 2015. William and his wife, the renowned sculptress Julia Bracken Wendt, settled in Laguna Beach and lived there for the rest of their lives. During those years, William would travel along the coast, painting the sea and at times capturing the seasonal bungalows scattered along the hills above the water from various vantage points. These became some of Wendt's most sought-after paintings. They are iconic scenes that show off Wendt's innate ability to capture light and color and translate the California landscape into pure visual harmony. Houses along the Coast is no exception. The viewer's eye is drawn into an iconic 'Wendt green" landscape, then up and over the cozy wooden homes to reveal distant Catalina Island and a sparkling sun dappled sea with a sliver of sun along the extreme top edge of the composition.
