Geoffrey Humphries


The renowned artist Geoffrey Humphries is the greatest figurative painter living and working in Venice today. He has established an international reputation as a master of painting, portraiture, watercolour and Expressionist fantasies revolving around the world of the cabaret.He is as famous for his bravura sense of colour as he is for the sensual nuance of his line, and his more recent forays into capturing Venice in watercolour have no equal - and indeed, bear comparison with Sargent and Turner.

He is one of the most gifted painters of his generation to turn his attention to portraiture, which he regards not as a chore or a necessary evil of the painter's trade, but as a means to probe the limits of human understanding, using paint to capture soul, psyche, and sensuality - in one go. The psychological acuity of his portraits has won him an ardent following, and his sitters range from locals of the Giudecca to rock stars and royalty.
