The Art of Virginia Strom Precourt 


Provence Inconnue



30” x 40”


Starting in the early ’70s, Virginia Strom Precourt traveled extensively to Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Because she often was in the company of researchers from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, she spent as much time working on the study of art restoration as she did on researching her own art. But the early riser always could be confident she’d have time for her own work early in the day. So it was on one empty-street day in Provence, France. An odd highlight: Virginia loved her dogs, but cats ruled in her paintings. The presence of a dog on this quiet street thus marked a rare canine appearance in her work.
