The Arts

Show Summary Details


From the beginning music, painting, drama, and architectural design had a part in the life and history of the pueblo of Los Angeles, there has been no continuing line of development in any of the arts. Traditional Spanish culture was gradually diluted in the decades after 1840, and around 1875 it was abruptly displaced. It was not until the great numbers of new residents had begun to take root that creative artists appeared and began to turn to the history and esthetic traditions of the region. This chapter describes the city's architecture, music makers, literature, art and artists, and the theater.
