the Art Associationfeatures early original paintings by internationally renowned artist JUDITH DEIM (1912-2006), also known as BARBARA STEVENSON, as well as a collection of modernist, abstract expressionist and figurative artwork spanning over sixty years by her friends and notable members of the Carmel Art Association, VICTOR DI GESU(1914-1988)andJANET AMENT DE LA ROCHE(1916-2000).
Janet and Victor met while studying art at the Chouinard and Jepson Art Institutes in Los Angeles and soon married. Eager to escape the "Sanity in Art" movement that had swept across the United States, they spent four years in Europe on the GI Bill and attended the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris, the Escuela de Belles Artes de San Jorge in Barcelona and schools in Italy. Both studied with Andre L'Hote, Yves Brayer and Jean Aujame and Victor also worked with Carlo Socrate. Their works have received world wide recognition with exhibitions at numerous major galleries in Europe and the United Sates, including the Louvre, the Grand Palais in the Salon d'Automne, San Francisco Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum, San Francisco Civic Center and the Monterey Peninsula Museum of Art. In 1956, they returned to the US and built a home in Pacific Grove, California. Shortly thereafter, prominent artist, Armin Hansen, promoted and sponsered Victor and Janet for membership into the Carmel Art Association.
In 1935, Judith Deim relocated to the Monterey Peninsula where she and her husband, Elwood Graham, painted portraits of John Steinbeck while he penned "Sea of Cortez" on Cannery Row. Deim's 1941 portrait of Steinbeck exhibited at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas, California and is the only painting of Steinbeck at work known to exist. It was during this time in California that Deim painted four portraits of Victor Di Gesu and Janet Ament.
In the mid 1950's, Judith Deim left the Bay Area and set off for Europe with her children and fellow artist, Alice Lindsay Price. This was the beginning of what were to become her gypsy years. Deim and her extended family led an adventurous and nomadic existence, never settling anywhere for longer than two years and always carrying her paintings everywhere they went.
