John Coburn (1925-2006) The Four Seasons of Nature: Summer; Autumn; Winter; and Spring each initialled 'FP', and signed in the weave 'Coburn' (lower right) pure wool Aubusson tapestry 72 x 108in. (183 x 274cm.) (4) Commissioned by The Christensen Fund in 1986, and acquired by the present owner when deaccessioned by the Fund. Please note that the Provenance for lots 62-65 should read: Commissioned by The Christensen Fund in 1986, and acquired by the present owner when deaccessioned by the Fund. I am really excited about "The Seasons" tapestries. I suppose I will go on and do more tapestries but these seem, to me, to be a high point in my tapestry career. John Coburn As an Australian living in an ancient powerful landscape that he loves, Coburn has developed a strong language of abstract symbolism that exists alongside some of the aboriginal painters in a curious kinship. N. Amadio, Coburn The Seasons Tapestries, Sydney, 1988, p.4 Commissioned from John Coburn by the Christensen Fund in 1986, 'The Seasons' comprised an ambitious series of nine large tapestries, produced in an edition of 3, on the subject of growth and regeneration, woven from life-size photographic enlargements of Coburn's maquettes in the Pinton Tapestry Studios at Felletin, Aubusson, France in 1987. Seven of the nine tapestries are included here, comprising 'The Four Seasons of Nature' (Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring), lot 62, two (Paradise Garden and Tree of Life) from 'The Four Spiritual Seasons', lots 63 and 64 -- the two not included here Death and Transfiguration and Resurrection -- and the single tapestry Hozanna, lot 65. The works were exhibited in Australia in 1989-90 ("The Seasons" tapestries and maquettes, Sydney, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Nov. 1989-Feb. 1990, a travelling exhibition to state and regional galeries), and in France in 1990 ("The Seasons" tapestries, Chateau de Villemonteix-Creuse, July-Sept. 1990).

JOHN COBURN (1925 – 2006) PERFORMANCE, 1980 oil on canvas 106.0 x 91.0 cm signed lower right: Coburn dated and inscribed verso: PERFORMANCE / John Coburn / Sydney 1980 / oil $20,000 – 30,000 Harold and Connie Slater collection, Sydney, acquired directly from the artist in 1987 Thence by descent Private collection, Sydney Amadio, N., John Coburn: Paintings , Craftsman House, Sydney, 1988, pp. 104–105, 201 (illus. p.105) The following excerpt is taken from Nadine Amadio’’’’s book, John Coburn Paintings : ‘Coburn is on stage or perhaps in the ring. He had not yet actually designed for the theatre but this joyous work, full of clownish smiles and juggling shapes, has the fun and glitter of the circus. It is appropriately named Performance. There is a real humour and playfulness in this work, somewhat reminiscent of Joan Miro in its feeling of nature at play. Although Coburn does not have the same fantasy element in his work he does have a similar control an inbuilt “rightness” about the distribution and placement of forms. The blazing background, the blues, the scarlet on red, the yellow ball, are enjoyable games in themselves. Coburn has never been afraid of colour. He had displayed courage in his life’’’’ s work on many levels but his fearlessness in the realms of colour is not only adventure but an innate ability to orchestrate his works in a way that brings an extraordinary vitality to his painting.’’’’ 1 1.
