Framed colorful pastel and ink landscape signed by artist Erle Loran, entitled "Gold Run".
it was Cézanne's work that motivated him. His fascination with Cézanne led him on a three-year odyssey through Cézanne country where Loran painted and photographed the countryside around Aix en Provence.
Among Loran's many exhibitions were in 1924 at the Minnesota State Fair; the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, 1933; the Rockefeller Center, 1935; Oakland Art Gallery, 1936-1946; the San Francisco Art Museum annuals from 1936; the California Watercolor Society, 1947, among many others. His works can be seen at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Denver Museum, the University of Minnesota, the Santa Barbara Museum.
His early paintings include lyrical abstractions in primary colors; however, his style has constantly changed with the times. Watercolor and pastels were Loran's medium of choices because it dried fast and was lighter to transport to his often remote outdoor locations.
