Clark Hobart, American, (1868–1948)

Untitled (Monterey Dunes)

Oil on canvas
15.75 x 23.75 in. (40.005 x 60.325 cm)
Gift of Barbara and William Hyland
Accession Number: 1991.272

Clark Hobart lived in Monterey for several years beginning in 1911, during which time he showed works at the Hotel Del Monte Gallery and at the Pan Pacific International Exhibition. Spending much of his life in San Francisco, Hobart's work received acclaim throughout the United States.

Compare this dune painting with Jonnevold's painting of a similar subject and it becomes clear how much composition dictates our experience with a scene. Unlike Jonnevold's intimate perspective, Hobart here has us looking from a distance, across a meadowed foreground. The sunlit dune rises impressively in the middle distance, framed by trees and shrubbery which emphasize its quiet emptiness.
