I start today with a portrait of an artist and her works. Gesture And Elizabeth is the title of this 1936 painting by Gordon Davies.
This is Gesture by Elizabeth Wyn Wood
Lawren Harris of the Group of Seven moved into a more stylized, abstract field as his life went on. This is Abstraction, dating to 1939.
Lighthouse, Father Point is another Harris work, from 1930.
Two works by the same artist are together. Carl Schaefer painted Ontario Farmhouse in 1934.
Summer Harvest, Hanover dates to 1935.
Over time, works by Inuit and other indigenous artisans have come to be rightfully seen as art, and display cases here contain a multitude of sculptures.
I leave off today with this unusual work. Pavane is by Jean Paul Riopelle, and dates to 1954
William - I love that the sculpture is in the painting and in the museum. How cool is that? I find the sculpture very moving. I also am very attracted to Summer Harvest. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
"Gesture" suggests the most horrible loss. Very powerful.ReplyDelete
(Btw: hard to read the signs at second click. No complaint, just a hint).
