Dogs playing poker painting from the collection of artist David

A. LaPlante. Painting is an original from the collection of artist David A. LaPlante.

LaPlante, a fine art watercolorist based in Washington, NY, has focused for many years on capturing the

character and spirit of the countryside and its people. Through his paintings he shares the simple pleasures of life.

Although his work is in the genre of Americana, it is in no way sentimentalized, a characteristic he credits to his

artistic training in the New England School of Painting, the tradition of landscape watercolors by New York artists

like William Zorach and George Pach, and the works of American wildlife and natural history painters like Thomas

S. Girtman, Arthur A. Harvey, Richard E. Slader and George B. Seitz.

His works can be found in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Smithsonian American Art

Museum, Museum of the City of New York, The New York State Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Pennsylvania

Academy of Fine Arts, and numerous private collections throughout the world.

Watercolor on handmade paper mounted on chipboard 16 x 22 inches

The Dog Playing Poker (1997) is an original from the collection of artist David

A. LaPlante. Painting is an original from the collection of artist David A. LaPlante.

LaPlante, a fine art watercolorist based in Washington, NY, has focused for many years on capturing the

character and spirit of the countryside and its people. Through his paintings he shares the simple pleasures of life.

Although his work is in the genre of art, it is informed by the contemporary art movement, in that he has become

increasingly more concerned with the interrelationships of design, color, texture, and shape in his work. His

paintings are not meant to be studied or analyzed, they are viewed, as with any other art, as a whole experience.

He has exhibited throughout the U.S., in the Bahamas, and in Europe, and is currently represented in the

NYFA Gallery on 57th Street in New York City. He is represented by The Hudson River School of Artists in

Dover, Delaware. LaPlante was recently appointed Artist-in-Residence at the Hudson River Museum in

Hoboken, New Jersey. He lives and works in Washington, NY.

The painting on this page, The Dog Playing Poker, was the winner of the first annual

International Watercolor Society's International Exhibition, 1991. It is a small painting

that is signed and dated on the bottom right. It is one of eight watercolors which

were featured in the exhibition.

Each watercolor was accompanied by a label on which the artist and title of the painting are listed. The label was

also posted next to the art at the International Exhibition in the exhibition room.

Each of the 8 watercolors was hung in the room on its own white panel. Each was on display from May 8th to 15th, 1991.

During the exhibition, art was viewed by approximately 35,000 people.

The painting was purchased by the Smithsonian American Art Museum for $18,000, an estimate of its

appraised value was $20,000-$25,000.

The Watercolor Society, founded in the 1970's, is the only organization whose members are exclusively

watercolorists. It was established to promote and recognize quality watercolors through

criteria established by its members.

The International Exhibition is one of four

annual exhibitions of watercolors to be held by the Society each year. These exhibitions

are the Society's most important events.

During the exhibition, watercolors will be viewed by an average of 40,000 people. In addition,

all 8 of the watercolors by LaPlante and the exhibition will be featured in a special section

of the Society's quarterly magazine,

The Watercolor Artist.

Since its founding, the International Exhibition has featured about 500 paintings by hundreds of

watercolorists from around the world.

The Watercolor Society presents this exhibition at the National

Gallery of Art

"American Watercolor Now: In Honor of the 50th
