Features six plein-air painters in Oakland, California, who joined together in 1917 to form an association that lasted nearly fifteen years. The artists include Selden Connor Gile, August F. Gay, Maurice Logan, Louis Siegriest, Bernard von Eichman, and William H. Clapp. They created a color-centered modernist idiom that shocked establishment tastes but remains the most advanced painting of its era in Northern California.
