Binning: A Retrospective, Fine Arts Gallery, University of British Columbia, 1973, page 12 Selected View: The Longstaffe Collection, 1959 - 1984, Vancouver Art Gallery, 1985, listed page 39 Exhibited: Vancouver Art Gallery, Selected View: The Longstaffe Collection, 1959 - 1984, January 12 - February 24, 1985 B.C. Binning’s work is often described as lyrical and classical. His interest in nautical West Coast themes is seen in this exceptional painting, which has a fanciful and joyous atmosphere. As Doreen Walker comments: “In [Binning’s] works, brightly coloured nautical forms are used as basis for imaginative inventions. Abstracted anchors, towers, navigation devices, weather stations and pennants become geometric motifs; and linear rigging forms a counterpoint to coloured masses…..Miroesque and Klee-like qualities have been attributed to Binning’s seascapes of the fifties, and in his use of wiry line and ‘playfulness’ and fantasy, such affinities may be found. ‘I like Klee and Miro,’ the artist acknowledged, and ‘one unconsciously makes a little repertoire of what one likes.’ ” Binning achieved international acclaim - he exhibited in the United States, Europe, Mexico and South America, and participated in the prestigious Venice Biennale in 1954. A key figure in the modernist scene in Vancouver as both artist and educator, Binning also had national influence. He served on the Visual Arts Committee of the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and on the Canada Council for the Arts’ Advisory Panel. This work is in the artist’s original frame.

Description:
John William (J.W.) Beatty OSA RCA 1869 - 1941 Canadian Sketch for Winter Sunshine, Bellefountain [sic] (Cabin at River's Edge in Winter) oil on board signed and on verso inscribed variously 8 1/2 x 10 1/2 in 21.6 x 26.7cm Provenance: Richardson Bros. Art Gallery, Winnipeg Private Collection, Ontario Literature: Dorothy M. Farr, J.W. Beatty 1869 – 1941, Agnes Etherington Art Center 1980, the canvas reproduced page 79 Through his rich use of colour, Beatty gracefully depicts the configuration of the land as the sun pours over the snow. His ability to contrast light and shadow, snow and water, bring depth and vitality to the scene while at the same time, encapsulate a certain sense of stillness on a sunny winter’s day. In Sketch for Winter Sunshine, Bellefountain [sic], Beatty’s application of paint shows his interest in a lively and looser brush stroke, which enabled the artist to achieve a vibrancy often found in sketches that were quickly produced in natural light. This painting is a sketch for a large oil on canvas that was stolen from the Ontario College of Art and Design’s (OCAD) permanent collection in 2007, where Beatty was a passionate teacher for many years.

Description:
Lot # 001 Folk Art: Works by Maud Lewis & Joe Norris Online auction Maud Lewis 1903 - 1970 Canadian Two Oxen with Tulips enamel on board signed 12 x 12 1/2 in 30.5 x 31.8cm Provenance: Private Collection, Ontario Born in South Ohio, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, Maud Lewis is renowned for her bright paintings of Maritime rural life. Having contracted polio, and suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, Lewis left school at the age of 14 and lived a confined but happy life at home. She began her artistic career by painting Christmas cards with her mother that they sold on the streets of Yarmouth. Following the death of her parents, Lewis moved to Marshalltown, Digby County, Nova Scotia to live with her aunt. It was there that she met her future husband, Everett Lewis, a fish peddler. They married in 1938 and moved into his small cabin. She continued to paint cards and began to paint scenes on wood panels. Everett often took Maud with him while selling fish and would promote her artwork to his customers. With his encouragement, Lewis began to produce more paintings. Her work grew in popularity, and buyers began to come directly to her home to acquire her paintings. Despite her lack of formal training, Lewis’s depictions of rural life, animals and landscapes, drawn from her everyday experiences, have an irresistible charm and vitality. She often used oil paints straight from the tube and rarely mixed her pigments, and her colourful work expressed the essence of Maritime life. Her work gained popularity to the point that she was featured in numerous newspapers, such as the Moncton Times, the Atlantic Advocate and the Star Weekly, and she also starred in a CBC-TV Telescope program in 1965. In 1967, her work was shown at the Centennial Exhibition of Primitive Art in New Brunswick at Beaverbrook House, St. John. Prominent collectors of her work include R.L. Stanfield, the former premier of Nova Scotia and Richard Nixon, the former President of the United States. Her paintings still hang in the White House and the Legislative Building of Nova Scotia. Lewis passed away at the Digby General Hospital at the age of 67 in 1970. She has become one of Canada’s most well-known and endearing folk artists. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has a large collection of her paintings, and installed her original house in the gallery as part of a permanent exhibition of her work. In 2016, a film was released on her life entitled Maudie which was screened at film festivals in Canada, the United States and Europe to positive critical reviews, and which has brought more awareness to the work of this Maritime treasure. Please note: this work is unframed.
