In the galleries: A painter’s progress revealed

Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post
"The Hemphill Fine Arts show starts with two tentative works from 1964: The Dutch-bred D.C. painter (and onetime Phillips Collection curator) sketched acrylic pigment on the raw canvas for which Washington Color School innovators Morris Louis and Kenneth Noland were known. By 1967, de Looper was filling the frame, at least in the works on paper included here."
