De Paris à Venise: Henry St. Clair (1899 – 1990)
June 23, 2017 @ 12:00 pm
Journey back in time with Post-Impressionist painter Henry St. Clair (French, 1899 – 1990). Travel along the streets of Paris, the seaside resorts of France and the canals of Venice. Much of St. Clair’s oeuvre was completed between 1920 and 1970, with a four-year exception, 1941 – 1945, during the German occupation of France. He was inspired by the spirited colors and gaiety of Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) and influenced by the art of Eugene Boudin (1824-1898). His vivid colors and assured lines convey a sense of joie de vivre, an honest enthusiasm infusing scenes of everyday life. Summer hours: Sun & Mon, 12 – 6; Thu – Sat, 12 – 7; and by appointment.
