John Collette
Summer, Beacon Hill Boston

1990

About

Wonderful etching with hand coloring in watercolor of Beacon Hill, Boston titled "Summer" by John Collette (American, 1941-1997), circa 1990. #30/400. Signed, numbered and titled lower edge. Condition: Excellent. Presented in rustic wood frame under glass. Image size: 27"H x 18"W. Framed size: 32"H x 23.50"W. His early work in watercolors and ink paved the way for the development of his distinctive hand colored etching technique. The underlying image is in black ink and an etching, the overlay of color is all hand brushed in watercolors by the artist, his own special technique. John Collette was born in Boston, MA, December 25, 1941. His interest in art began in early childhood when he discovered the fun and excitement of drawing and painting. His first formal art training, in junior high school, was particularly helpful to his becoming an artist because his teacher, recognizing his talent, gave him more demanding assignments than his classmates and generously offered to enter John's work in national scholastic art competitions. Music was another of John's early interests and he studied several instruments and played in various musical groups while growing up. When he was ready for college he wanted to continue his musical studies. After passing an audition on piano, he was accepted as a music major at Boston University. In 1963 John visited Quebec City, Canada. There decided to do some sketches of the quaint old parts of town. This led to his meeting a group of art students who had recently begun to exhibit their work on a narrow street. Rue du Tresor, just off the main square. They invited John to join them and the sketches he had just completed were shown and quickly sold for a few dollars. For the next several summers he worked in Quebec, experimenting with a wide variety of mediums and styles and finding a steady stream of buyers in the tourists who visited the city. The rest of the year, while attending Boston University, he continued to paint, selling his work through galleries in Boston and Philadelphia. His early work in watercolors and ink paved the way for the development of his distinctive hand colored etching technique, to which he devoted himself for more than 25 years. John also did a series of paintings of the Hudson River Valley for limited edition giclee prints. John’s work is well-known in the United States and abroad, and is included in many private, corporate, and public collections. For the last 13 years of his life he spent most of his time in New England and Hawaii. John Collette passed away in Boston in September of 1997.
