Kenton Nelson | A Standard of Elegance


A Standard of Elegance by Kenton Nelson is a perfect example of Nelson's quintessential sun-soaked New Deal Era style. A single figure in a vintage red swimsuit curves across the canvas, her green towel a perfect contrast. The viewer can close their eyes and imagine themselves at the beach on a sunny California summer day in the 1930's or 40's.


Nelson's perfectly nostalgic painting was included in the Laguna Beach Art Museum's 38th Annual California Cool Live Benefit Auction alongside artists such as Ed Ruscha. The Laguna Art Museum is committed to collecting and preserving California artwork, such as Kenton Nelson's paintings.


Current artwork from Kenton Nelson's latest exhibition, Water Painting, in St. Helena can be found here.
