Geoffrey Humphries, “Laura Reflection with Parasol,” oil on canvas, 100 x 70 cm.

A long-standing chronicler of Venetian life, English artist Geoffrey Humphries and his famous feminine subjects have captivated connoisseurs and collectors for over 30 years.

Artist Geoffrey Humphries’ international following has been quite excited about a current show at Osborne Studio Gallery in London that features both new and old works. On view through October 12, the exhibition features about 31 of Humphries’ pictures and showcases his talent as a cityscape, figurative, and still life painter.

Geoffrey Humphries, “Rachel with Blue Silk,” oil on canvas, 120 x 80 cm.
Geoffrey Humphries, “Sleeping Girl on Opium Bed,” oil on canvas, 122 x 76 cm.
Geoffrey Humphries, “From Accademia Bridge Toward the Salute,” watercolor on paper, 37 x 27 cm.

“His evocative work does not conform to the genre of many Venetian paintings, but captures the mood of this extraordinary city and its inhabitants” the gallery suggested. Be that as it may, there can be no doubt that the city’s reputation for inspiring extremely skilled colorists shines through Humphries’ work.
