William Heydt loves the energy of Newport. After the galleries of New York City, the ateliers of Paris, the ambiance of Jamestown, the artist, and his family made a home in Newport. Originally from New York, Heydt first discovered the island while attending RISD, where he earned a BFA and later an MFA in painting and printmaking. He furthered his study of printmaking in Paris under the renowned Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17. He later went on to work as a faculty member at the Massachusetts College of Art. During his time in NYC in the '80s, Heydt's primary focus was photography- a passion that followed him on his travels through Europe, the Far East, Asia, the Caribbean, and South America. Heydt's transition into watercolor was marked by his move to Newport, a place he has now called home for several decades. This book is a retrospective of these years painting the local commity.
