“By the Sea”—Solo Exhibition at the St. Botolph Club in March 2016

The St. Botolph Club was founded in 1880 with a constitution proclaiming, “for the purpose of promoting social intercourse among persons connected with, or interested in the arts, humanities and sciences.” The Club’s members have been a diverse lot. John Quincy Adams, Henry Cabot Lodge, publishers Henry Houghton and George Mifflin, historian Francis Parkman and artists John Singer Sargent and Daniel Chester French, sculptor of the Abraham Lincoln statue. The Club fervently espoused the Impressionists, culminating in the famous exhibits of the work of Claude Monet.
