Description:
Doris Jean McCarthy CSPWC OC OSA RCA 1910 - 2010 Canadian Pond Inlet with Floes on the Mud oil on canvas signed and on verso titled, dated 1981 on the gallery label and inscribed "810329" 60 x 84 in 152.4 x 213.3cm Provenance: Aggregation Gallery, Toronto Private Collection, Ontario Literature: Doris McCarthy, William L. Moore and Stuart Reid, Celebrating Life: The Art of Doris McCarthy, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, 1999, reproduced page 207 Doris McCarthy�s landscape work was influenced by the revolutionary Group of Seven. Her love of nature infused her painting, and like the Group, she sketched en plein air. Based in Toronto, she was involved with the art societies there, such as the Ontario Society of Artists, the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour and the Royal Canadian Academy. After retiring in 1972 from 40 years as an art teacher in Toronto�s Technical School, McCarthy was free to travel farther afield to paint, and her sketching trips to the Arctic began that same year. She visited sites such as Grise Fiord and Pond Inlet, and had a passion for this unique landscape, declaring, �In my first year in the Arctic I met my very first iceberg and I went crazy about icebergs.� She went to the Arctic almost every year in the 1970s, and in 1981 traveled to Broughton Island. McCarthy�s strong sense of form, characteristic of her oeuvre, manifests here in the solid, sculpted shapes of the ice pans, backed by a distant mountain range. Her sense of this unique place manifests in the strong clear light of the North and the feeling of a vast and powerful land.

Lot # 067 Doris Jean McCarthy CSPWC OC OSA RCA 1910 - 2010 Canadian Pangnirtung, Northwest Territories oil on canvas signed and on verso titled, dated 1984 on the gallery label and inscribed "84022" 40 x 54 in 101.6 x 137.1cm Provenance: Wynick/Tuck Gallery, Toronto Private Collection, Toronto Literature: Doris McCarthy, The Good Wine: An Artist Comes of Age, 1991, page 158 "Twice a day at Pangnirtung the tide came in, bringing with it a flotilla of ice floes that sailed up the fiord like a regatta of small bergs. As the tide ebbed, they went back to sea, their restless movement keeping me in a constant state of excitement." Doris McCarthy's words from the first of three memoirs remind us of her passion and commitment to the full-time artist's life that she longed for and finally achieved, after retirement from a 40-year career as a memorable and beloved art teacher. Soon after that retirement in 1972, McCarthy headed out on the first of many painting trips to the Arctic, starting with Pond Inlet, only later recalling in her diary that it had been her sixty-second birthday the day she had a harrowing fall into a frozen creek. This fine 1984 scene of one of her favourite painting sites clearly demonstrates that nothing could stop McCarthy from continuing her explorations of the great Canadian landscape and the high Arctic.
