Artist Rex Brandt, who lived and worked in Corona del Mar for most of his life, is considered one of the most important and influential California watercolorists.
From ‘Blue Sky’, his home and studio located on Goldenrod next to the Footbridge, he created hundreds of paintings of coastal scenes and one of the most important watercolor schools. Through the school and eleven books on watercolor painting, Brandt taught and inspired many professional artists.
There is a plaque today that recognizes where ‘Blue Sky’ used to be located. The 1941 home was designed by Brandt and was formerly located at 405 Goldenrod.
