Description
The spectacular 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition celebrated both the opening of the Panama Canal and the reconstruction of San Francisco following the devastating 1906 earthquake. Among its many attractions, the exposition presented the most comprehensive art exhibition ever shown on the West Coast, with an emphasis on American painters working in the Impressionistic style.

Benjamin Chambers Brown (1865–1942), a painter, photographer, and printmaker, won a bronze medal for his etchings, at least two of which feature the Palace of Fine Arts, designed by Bernard R. Maybeck for the exposition. Brown was influenced by the color palette of his coexhibitors; his later paintings grew brighter. He became known for Impressionistic landscapes and was ultimately dubbed the “Dean of Pasadena Painters.”

Like Brown, Euphemia Charlton Fortune (1885–1969) was inspired by the exposition’s architecture. After suffering the devastating loss of most of her pre-1906 artwork in the earthquake and ensuing fire, Fortune was at the pinnacle of her career at the time of the exposition. She won silver for her Hall of Flowers painting of the grand entrance to Festival Hall.
