Revel in the Sun-drenched California Mission Paintings of Edwin Deakin

Edwin Deakin is justly celebrated as the foremost painter of the California missions. Deakin painted all 21 missions between 1887 and 1889, and those paintings have been brought together as a collection at the St. Barbara Mission Archive. These wonderful paintings have now been lovingly restored, bringing out once again their vivid colors and details. Watch this Edwin Deakin video to view the collection with painting conservator Scott Haskins, who also gives a glimpse into the restoration process.
