William Keith: The Beginning of the Collection

Exhibition Website

Jun 5 2016 - Dec 11 2016

In 1908, Brother Cornelius Braeg hiked from Saint Mary's College to John Muir's home in Martinez to meet the famous naturalist. 

While there, Braeg was drawn to Muir's art collection which included a number of Keith works and these immediately captured Braeg's attention. Over the next four decades, Brother Cornelius collected 100 paintings for the Saint Mary's College Art collection. This exhibition features some of the first paintings acquired for the Collection.
