Tilden Daken: The Art of Adventure

December 9, 2023 – Extended through March 31, 2024

Tilden Daken (1876-1935) was a California landscape painter known primarily for his oil paintings of the California redwoods, the Sierra Nevada mountains, and countryside scenes in both Northern and Southern California. He is closely associated with the California Impressionists, who painted during the first three decades of the twentieth century. Daken’s life, travels, and adventures paralleled many of the important stories of California - from the Gold Fields, to the growth of San Francisco and the rise of Hollywood, to the state’s connections across the southern border with Mexico.
