Is there a website for Gustave Blache where I can view all or a selection of his art?
I know of one website where you can see several of this talented artist's works: www.coleprattgallery.com, the website for Cole Pratt Gallery on Magazine Street. You can also find information there about Gustave Blache III's education and exhibits of his work.
Blache is a native of New Orleans. He completed his bachelor of fine arts at the School of Visual Arts in Savannah, Ga., and his master of fine arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Art critic D. Eric Bookhardt reviewed Blache's work in Gambit in December 2006, writing "Gustave Blache is a youthful New Orleanian now making a name for himself in New York. Reflecting a rather Francophile style reminiscent of Degas with overtones of Courbet, his paintings have appeared in old-master exhibitions in which he was the only living artist. Despite ties to 19th century France and 21st century New York, he regularly returns home, and if the paintings in this Mop Makers show suggest prosaic scenes that Degas might have painted in New Orleans over a century ago, they actually depict workers at an employment program at our present-day Lighthouse for the Blind. A product of NOCCA and the youth art projects presided over by Richard Thomas, Blache tempers the immediacy of the present with a deeper perspective rooted firmly in the past."
