Lot 61 DORIS JEAN MCCARTHY, O.S.A., R.C.A. STORM CLOUDS OF KEEL, 1999 oil on canvas signed; titled on the overflap 36 ins x 48 ins; 91.4 cms x 121.9 cms Provenance: Wynick/Tuck Gallery, Toronto Private Collection, Toronto Literature: Stuart Reid, \“Island Sketches: Thoughts on Watercolour Paintings of Doris Mc Carthy,\” In Celebrating Life: The Art of Doris Mc Carthy, Mc Michael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinburg, Ontario, 1999. Doris Mc Carthy, A Fool in Paradise: An Artist\’s Early Life, Macfarlane Walter & Ross, Toronto, 1990. Doris Mc Carthy (1910-2010) studied at the Ontario College of Art under the supervision of several noted Group of Seven members, eventually becoming a teacher in the art department at Central Technical School in 1932, where she remained for forty years. Teaching afforded her a newfound independence, and her lifelong curiosity is manifest in her evolving aesthetic approach. Mc Carthy experimented with form continually, reducing, stretching, and synthesizing it to its essential structure of line, shape and colour, allowing herself to be influenced both by those she was working with and the evolving face of art movements over the years. What remained constant in her work was her dedication to the representation of landscape and the continuum of an event, that is the perception of a space over a period of time. Mc Carthy travelled to Britain and Ireland repeatedly throughout her lifetime, documenting what she saw in both oils and watercolour. At times picturing the landscape as formidable and foreboding, she always placed the vantage point as hovering slightly above the ground. The painting Storm Clouds of Keel, creates a sense of place that is at once familiar and distant. Reminiscent of Group of Seven landscape compositions, Mc Carthy captures the jutting rock cliffs of the far western shores of Ireland in richly applied oils, using various shades of green and blue to convey depth and a sense of drama. While ostensibly a painting about storm clouds, we are immediately drawn to the striking hillside that also commands our attention. Through a beautifully articulated understanding of the importance of colour and shape, Mc Carthy transports us a great distance, if only in our imagination.

DORIS JEAN MCCARTHY, O.S.A., R.C.A. DESERT AT TAOS, 1998 oil on canvas signed; titled on the reverse 24 ins x 30 ins; 61 cms x 76.2 cms Provenance: Wynick/Tuck Gallery, Toronto Private Collection, Picton, Ontario Literature: William Moore and Stuart Reid, Celebrating Life: The Art of Doris Mc Carthy, Mc Michael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinburg, 1999, page 180 and 181. At the young age of fifteen, Doris Mc Carthy (1910-2010) attended the Ontario College of Art under the tutelage of Arthur Lismer. Lismer had a loyal following of eager and keen students ready to absorb his knowledge, and a classroom where \“Lismer\’s lectures, insight, and criticism were enthusiastically (embraced) by Mc Carthy.\” Mc Carthy was one of his star pupils, winning complete tuition and further scholarships for her education and would go on to work for Lismer at the Art Gallery of Toronto. Reviews of Mc Carthy's work has often included commentary on the intrepidness of the artist, remarking on her habit of travelling to remote locales to capture the essence of the Canadian experience. The personality of the painter, whose charm was legendary, often received as much "ink" as the painting itself. Mc Carthy's gender and, eventually, her impressive longevity - she lived until she was 100 - have at times diverted attention away from the work itself. These aspects aside, she rightfully claims a top spot as one of our most popular and enduring landscape painters. It is interesting to consider the arc of her career as represented by
