Gardens and Grandeur: Porcelains & Paintings by Franz A. Bischoff: The work of Franz A. Bischoff (1864-1929), both in porcelain and easel paintings reflects the highest standards of American art. Furthermore, those works that focus on landscapes encapsulate the unique qualities of California Impressionism by combining great beauty with historical significance and, most of all, a deep reverence for nature.

The Irvine Museum is proud to present Gardens and Grandeur: Porcelains and Paintings by Franz A. Bishoff, an exhibition that was organized and toured by the Pasadena Museum of California Art.
