Message from Moulton Family

In this retrospective show, we are honored to feature Nellie Gail Moulton as a prominent en plein air artist who studied with the masters. As our matriarch, she was truly a pioneer. A keen business woman, prolific artist, caring teacher, dedicated mother and passionate world traveler, Nellie Gail Moulton was ahead of her time.

As owner and operator of Moulton Ranch, her philanthropy, dedication to the arts and commitment to education were outstanding models to our family, Orange County and society at large. For many years our family has been collecting and conserving her artwork and we are thrilled to be exhibiting her creations with you at historic Casa Romantica.

We hope you appreciate her wonderful ability to translate her love of California and her international travel experiences onto drawing paper, artist’s board, and canvas. Enjoy the show!

— The Moulton Family
