Journey back in time along the streets of Paris, the seaside resorts of France and the canals of Venice. A Post-Impressionist painter, Henry St. Clair (French, 1899 – 1990) was inspired by the spirited colors and gaiety of Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) and influenced by the art of Eugene Boudin (1824-1898). 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. 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.
