HAROLD TOWN "TANGERINE BLUE STRETCH" 1971
Harold Town (1924-1990) is renowned in Canada for his prolific, versatile and dynamic body of work.
Town was dubbed as the "Picasso of Canada" for his ever-changing aesthetic and perennial creativity.
He experimented with illustration and surrealism, while his reputation was established with a series of unique prints ("Single Autographic Prints") that included elements of collage.
During the early 1960's he completed intricate abstract canvases, yet by the end of the 1970's he was working on stylized figuration with his "Toy Horse" and later the "Muscleman" series.
His "Stretch" works were initially received with critical ambivalence.
Today, these works look remarkably contemporary with their almost minimal forms and hyper-sweet palette. For the uninitiated, many assume this body of work to be brand new.
Caviar20 is excited to be offering this timeless and dynamic example from Harold Town's oeuvre.
