        Geoffrey Humphries accepts portrait commissions both personally and through Holly Snapp Gallery. With enough advance notice, he is available throughout the year, and prefers to work from his waterfront studio, a vast old palazzo with extraordinary views overlooking the biggest and most breathtaking canal in Venice. With its spectacular north-facing light off the Giudecca canal, and its vivid atmosphere made up of costumes, music, and the paraphernalia of over forty years of intense vie de boheme his famous studio provides an ideal setting for portraiture. Sitters generally find that they are handsomely entertained as well as beautifully portrayed.

Small portraits (head, head and shoulders only) can generally be completed in two to three sittings.
A sitting is considered a two-and-a-half to three hour session. Larger compositions (three-quarters, full-length) may take up to five sittings.Most sitters find that a long weekend is sufficient for completing a full-size finished portrait.
Prices range from 2,500 to 20,000 euros.

Many seasoned travellers do not consider their Grand Tour complete without sitting for Geoffrey Humphries.
