Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust is proud to have in our collection a series of 17 monoprints by Washington, DC artist Jack Boul.

Boul was profoundly affected by photos of concentration camps he saw as a young U.S. soldier in Italy at the end of World War II. The stark images of Boul's Holocaust series are his attempt to convey the horror of the concentration camps and to memorialize this dark moment in history.

For more than 65 years, Jack Boul has been one of the premiere artists in the Washington DC area, employing his exceptional talents in painting, monotype, and sculpture to convey a deeply poetic sensibility. His work is featured in scores of public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Art. Boul was on the faculty of numerous schools including American University, Montgomery College, and the Washington Studio School, which he helped found. He has had exhibitions at the Corcoran Museum of Art, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and his most recent exhibition in 2017 at Stanford University’s Art Gallery in Washington DC.

Boul's series of 17 Holocaust monoprints was first exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 2000 before it was donated to Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust in 2008.
