Framing Karl Yens

Here’s a painting we just framed by notable Laguna Beach painter Karl Julius Yens (originally Jens) (1868-1945).

Karl Yens painting“Hounding Hour in the Desert,” n.d., is an oil on canvas, 26″ x 22″. The 4″ wide frame, in quartersawn white oak (Saturated Medieval Oak stain), is a Compound Mitered Frame No. 16 CV + Cap 16 CV with a 1/2″ wide pale gold liner in similar profile to the frame and cap.

Yens was born in Germany, and studied widely in Europe and Scotland before moving to the U.S. in 1901. In his first decade in this country he worked in New York and Washington, D.C. as a mural painter. He moved west to Southern California in 1910, finally settling in Laguna Beach in 1918.
