"I don’t know how many bistros there are in Paris but I do know the pulse of this beautiful city can be felt in each of them. Those bistros are almost like a species unto themselves. I love painting them because they remind me of great moments of my life in Paris when we lived there in the late eighties. There is indeed something magical about sitting out in the Paris sun and watching the world go by. Les Deux Magots is one of the most well known, situated on the corner of Boulevards Saint Germain and Raspail, it a typical haunt of many Parisians and tourists alike." -- Alice Williams
There is no mistaking an Alice Williams painting. Post-impressionist in style for over 40 years, she makes it look easy, but that perfectly unfinished, relaxed precision is the result of a lifelong love affair with the arts and dedicated study with many of the great American artists of our time.
She studied Fine Arts at Columbia College, Furman University, and Clemson University in South Carolina, then went on to study under Al Green, John Howard Kintsler, and Albert Handel, to name a few. It was in Atlanta that she found the great Russian painters (and brothers), Constantine and Roman Chatov, who quickly became her most influential teachers.
