Irving Gill: Los Angeles
Saturday, October 22, 2016
Join the Southern California chapters of the SAH and Docomomo US and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at the University of California, Santa Barbara present “Irving Gill: Los Angeles.” In conjunction with the upcoming exhibit “Irving Gill: Simplicity and Reform,” this home tour offers glimpses inside three important Gill houses in the Los Angeles area: Horatio West Court (1919) in Santa Monica, The Chauncey and Marie Rankin Clarke Estate (1919-21) in Santa Fe Springs and the White/Morgan Residence (1917) in Hollywood. Deluxe coach transportation, an educational brochure and gourmet, boxed lunches will be provided on this exclusive day-long tour.
The work of Irving J. Gill has been lauded by critic Lewis Mumford as “one of the great leaders of modern architecture” and Henry-Russell Hitchcock who insisted that his buildings were “more premonitory of the next phase of modern architecture than any other American work of the period.” Truly, Gill’s ornamental restraint and elegant proportions laid the groundwork for Southern California modernism.
Check out our two other Irving Gill related events this fall: a free lecture by author Thomas Hines and a behind-the-scenes tour of the exhibit “Irving Gill: Simplicity and Reform” and is co-sponsored by SAH/SCC and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
