Description:
Frank Hans (Franz) Johnston ARCA CSPWC G7 OSA 1888 - 1949 Canadian Winter Arabesque oil on board signed and on verso titled on the artist's label 20 x 24 in 50.8 x 61cm Provenance: Frederick Thom Gallery, Toronto By descent to the present Private Collection, Toronto While he was still a member of the Group of Seven, Frank Johnston went on sketching trips in northern Ontario with J.E.H. Mac Donald, Lawren Harris and A.Y. Jackson, and was well aware of the iconic snow scenes produced by Harris and Jackson. When he left the Group, Johnston continued to explore northern Ontario, often visiting the fishing camp of his friend Jack Mc Curdy on Onaman Lake in the country around Lake Nipigon. Johnston was undaunted by the cold, and his hardiness was part of the myth that surrounded the Group members, who were unafraid of enduring nature’s hard conditions to paint the wilderness. Johnston was known for the sensation of stillness, clarity of light and luminosity of atmosphere in his winter paintings. Winter Arabesque is also a fine example of Johnston’s eye for beauty, with its pattern of lacey branches, delicate pastel tones in the snow, brilliant light and blue shadows, and shimmering reflections in the stream.

Description:
Lot 70 FRANK HANS JOHNSTON, O.S.A., A.R.C.A. GOING HOME, STURGEON RIVER COUNTRY oil on masonite signed; also signed and titled on the reverse 25 ins x 30 ins; 68.6 cms x 82.6 cms Provenance: G. Blair Laing Limited, Toronto Private Collection, Ontario Literature: Roger Burford Mason, A Grand Eye for Glory: A Life of Franz Johnston, Dundurn Press, Toronto, 1998, page 55. Franz Johnston\’s (1888-1949) well known decision to leave the Group of Seven after a single public group exhibition consumed both sides of the debate over traditionalism versus modernism in Canada among art cognoscenti and the general public alike. The Toronto Star went so far as to publish the headline \“Canadian artist deserts the extremist Group of Seven\” while others saw Johnston as abandoning the cause in the great march towards modernization. But Johnston\’s traditionalism was rooted in the rigorous training he had undergone in academic painting, which is often beautifully realized by an aesthetic that tends toward the atmospheric and decorative in contrast to other Group members. These ideological and stylistic differences, the offer and acceptance of a principal teaching position at the Winnipeg School of Art, and his feeling that the publicity surrounding the Group might potentially affect his sales, contributed to his decision to leave the Group in 1924. Johnston turned increasingly towards 19th century realism in his later career. Going Home, a pastoral winter scene, captures this affinity for more traditional theme and style.
