William H. Holst: Student, Teacher, Artist

From 4.30 pm until 5.30 pm

William H. Holst (1912-1995), modernist disciple of Hans Hofmann, taught and painted in Stonington and Deer Isle for close to four decades. A close friend of Haystack's founding director, Francis Merritt, he spent at least nine summers as an instructor there beginning in the late 1950s. Holst died at his home in Stonington on September 20, 1995 at the age of 83.
