A Brush with Printmaking: Monotypes by Jack Boul

Curated by Eric Denker

January 25, 2024 - April 21, 2024

For 74 years, Jack Boul has been one of the premiere artists in the Washington DC area, employing his exceptional talents in both painting, etching, and monotype to convey a deeply poetic sensibility. Nowhere is Boul’s achievement more evident than in his quietly evocative monotypes. Landscape fascinates him, yet he is as attracted to the poetry of a gritty cityscape as he is to the countryside. He depicts such prosaic urban sights as water towers and train yards with the same acuity as when rendering the charm of a Parisian café or a Venetian canal.

Watercolours of Venice by Geoffrey Humphries

Curated by Eric Denker

January 25, 2024 - April 21, 2024

Geoffrey Humphries has been the pre-eminent watercolorist working in Venice for the last fifty years. His acute sensitivity to light and its ability to transform color is at the core of his achievement. His watercolors are rapidly executed, on the spot, always maintaining the spontaneity of their execution and the immediacy of their artistic perception. In a very real sense, the city itself is his studio. He has the unique opportunity of returning to the same place, month after month, bearing witness to the constantly differing effects of light and atmosphere. The exhibition at Stanford in Washington Art Gallery includes 44 watercolors including many of the well-known sights that have made the city famous, such as the Basilica of San Marco, the Piazza, the Rialto Bridge, and the Grand Canal. However, Humphries is just as interested in views that are characteristic of the daily experience of the expatriate’s life in Venice.
