BOYS, Jeffrey (contemporary)

“Beach”

1990s

With degrees from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Philadelphia College of Art, and Indiana University [an MFA], Boys appears to have been active primarily in the ’80s and ’90s, when he painted this small work. “I like to paint something that will not be there five minutes later,” he says, and this snapshot of people on a beach conveys that immediacy. It has that in common with other works in the collection, especially two by Gabriel Spat, another much earlier impressionist.

“Beach” was a gift to the Community Collection in memory of Willis Fahnstock, a Fennimore county artist who had also attended PAFA a hundred years ago.
