Engravings, Julien Schuster
March 5, 2020 - April 24, 2020

Julien Schuster is a French illustrator and engraver born in Enghien-les-Bains, just outside of Paris.  Early in his career he drew theater sets for children and trained in silk-screen printing.  This exhibition features engravings from images carved into linoleum and printed on a vintage press.  The old French port city of Honfleur and the countryside of Normandy are the inspiration for depictions of wine, wind, rain, plants, animals, and architecture of the region.  Journalist Pauline Brehat wrote, “His colorful works are marked by tenderness, humility, naivety, gaiety, poetry, fantasy, talent.”
