Maurice George Logan (1886 - 1997)
Maurice George Logan was among the painters who termed themselves the "Society of Six", a group of California painters who rebelled against the conventions of California landscape painting.
Logan's work was generally produced in Plein-Aire fashion. He had an affinity for and a remarkable ability to render seascapes. He painted in oils as well as watercolors, sometimes producing double-sided pieces. His work still commands respectable prices in the art market.
Logan was a native of California and studied in San Francisco. He pursued his education at the San Francisco Institute of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the California College of Arts and Crafts. He eventually became a teacher at the California College of Arts and Crafts, serving in that capacity from 1935 - 1943.
The "Society of Six", as they termed themselves, were motivated to break with the conventions of California landscape painting by the use of colors consistent with the aesthetic aims of the Fauvist movement from France. It emphasized bold colors that were in direct opposition to the typically somber and natural tones preferred by California's Plein-Aire landscapists. This movement was very short lived and Maurice George Logan moved on from the movements color theory principles by the 1930's.
