813. William Wendt (1865-1946)was born in Bentzen, Germany and died in Laguna Beach,. In 1880, at the age of fifteen, Wendt immigrated to the United States and worked in Chicago as a staff artist where he painted formula pictures. In 1894 Wendt traveled and painted with his friend George Gardner Symons visiting England and California. Traveling to the hard to reach areas of the California countryside for inspiration, Wendt painted canvases graced with trees, rolling hills, blue skies and farmhouses. His earlier works have been termed tranquil and lyrical while his later works evolved to show bold and broad brushstrokes with rich greens and browns.  Highly regarded in California and nationally, he earned the title of "the dean of Southern California artists." In 1911, William Wendt became the first president of the California Art Club, and he also held memberships at: the American Federation of Arts, the Chicago Society of Artists, and the National Arts Club of New York. The below oils are from the fine collection of Valparaiso University’s Brauer Museum of Art, Valparaiso, Indiana.
