"Creative" DePrie is the name Gerald found for himself. The themes of his drawings are diverse : flowers, nudes or architectures. He worked fast. When he drew a human figure, he represented it first naked, then added clothes. He was fascinated with nursery rhymes and ancient places, in particular Egypt. A navy veteran, plagued by heart problems, he lived with his dog in a small apartment in West Virginia.1
