War Watercolors

War Watercolors Traveling Exhibit Oct 4-28, 1945

Virginia worked for Fontaine even while at War. She arranged a one-man show of  eighteen of his watercolors  to travel across country. He continued to paint even as his troop traveled from village to village.  He had set up an extra pup tent for his painting.  While stationed in Rome, Naples and Florence, he painted murals for the Army clubs there and illustrated the official history of the II Corp of Engineers. This watercolor show travelled to  the Milwaukee Art Institute, U. of Indiana Fine Arts Center, Ripon College, Wis.; Kalamazoo institute of Art, Fitchburg Art Center, Mass. Margaret Brown Art Gallery, Boston, Massachusetts.
