The Bohemain Club was chartered in 1872. Its founding members represented diverse occupations and included a newspapermen, vintner, printer, artists, actor-manager, poet and a few businessmen, Ambrose Bierce among them. Famous members included Mark Twain and Jack London. The club was best known for its contributions to the visual arts. Many of the artists who joined in the 1870s went on to become "painters who are today recognized as important mid-nineteenth century American artists." The Bohemian Club was most influential in the arts from the 1870s to around 1915.

|The Bohemian hegemony on artistic talent continued through the turn-of-the-century period as a second generation of Bohemian artists, a number of them California-born, returned from European study to Northern California with high ambitions. "These younger painters were joined by a generation of sculptors, designers, architects, and writers -- again, many of them active in the Bohemian Club -- whose cumulative creativity made these years a second and even more brilliant era." It was "an astonishingly rich cadre of artists who had before themselves no less a task than the translation of American civilization, in all its eclectic vigor, to the shores of the Pacific."
