Catalogue for an exhibition of the same name, held November 9, 2011 through February 26, 2012. The more than 60 works includes oil paintings, charcoal drawings, and pen-and-watercolor sketches that convey the breadth and strength of Slinkard's short-lived artistic development. The Cantor Arts Center is the primary repository of paintings and sketches by the early 20th-century California artist Rex Slinkard (1887-1918), who died in the influenza epidemic of 1918 while serving in the military. During his brief life, Slinkard emerged from his roots as a California rancher to become a painter who helped influence the modernist bent of the emerging California art scene.
