Book Synopsis:
Co-authors Cynthia Wagner Weick and Artist Joaquin Turner have created an accessible hands-on book, which allows readers to experience the Monterey Bay through the eyes of 22 renowned artists. The book outlines a self-guided tour of the scenes the artists painted in the late-19th century through the mid-20th century: in Monterey, Asilomar, Pebble Beach, Carmel by-the-Sea and Point Lobos. Location and biographical details allow readers to stand on or near the spots that inspired the artists, learn about each artist, and explore their roles in crafting the region’s rich artistic fabric.
