Layered veils of brilliant pink and mauve gouache overlaid with a dominate swath of Tuscan yellow are contained by a vertical stripe of dense sky blue. This piece is representative of the important mid-career shift Fox made into non-figurative painting. Fox's early work was steeped in the traditions of modern Anglophone landscape painting such as that of his teacher Goodridge Roberts at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts school as well as the intimiste interiors of Bonnard. In the early 1970s, in a dramatic departure Fox left figurative painting to explore the light filled colors and sensations of Venice and the Mediterranean. John Fox (1927-2008, Montreal, PQ) is a significant artist in Canadian art history. His work is found in major public, corporate and private collections across Canada, the US and Europe. Including the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, MacKenzie Art Gallery, Edmonton Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Museum London, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, Musèe d'art contemporain de Montrèal, Confederation Art Gallery and more.
