Sneaky Pete

Collage with watercolors, ink, paper, typography 1975
7 x 6 3/4 inches (17.8 x 17.1cm)

‘Sneaky Pete’ by WILLIAM DOLE tickles our senses with this colorful and compact architectonic composition.   Dole was head of the Art Department at UCSB since early 1950s.  Already recognized as a master of watercolor painting, on a sabbatical in late1950s, he purchased a portfolio of odd papers – endpapers from incunabula, manuscripts, asian writings, typography – that stimulated his embrace of collage as his aesthetic technique.
