Edward Balthazar: Urban Artist

An Online Exhibition

This online exhibition features the Waterbury scenes that Edward J. Balthazar (1890-1956) produced during the 1930s and 1940s. Celebrated during his lifetime as Waterbury’s own, Edward Balthazar’s art has largely gone unnoticed since his death. See his appealing art in scenes that document the area’s history and recall the mid-twentieth century era. His paintings and etchings celebrate his hometown in views as diverse as the natural gas works and the Pomperaug River. This online exhibit presents the artist’s biography, discussion of Waterbury subjects, and analysis of his style and technique.
