Description:
Lot # 128 Rita Mount ARCA 1888 - 1967 Canadian Village de L'Anse-aux-Gascons, Gasp�, Que. oil on canvas signed 24 x 32 in 61 x 81.3cm Provenance: Continental Galleries, Montreal The PSBGM Cultural Heritage Foundation Exhibited: Art Association of Montreal, Spring Exhibition, 1945 Rita Mount was an anglophone Montreal artist known for her Quebec landscape painting, particularly seascapes of the Gasp� coast. This is a remarkably atmospheric work, with its gorgeous green and blue water and the small, informal harbour with sailboats pulled up on the shore. Mount's soft brush-strokes, pastel tones and sensitive treatment of light is reminiscent of the French Impressionists' treatment of coastal France, but with a brilliant, clear light that reflects the uniqueness of Canadian atmosphere.

LOT 14 RITA MOUNT, A.R.C.A. LATE AFTERNOON, GLACE BAY, oil on canvas, signed 24" x 32"; 60 cm x 80 cm Auction Estimate: $5000 / $7000 Provenance: The Fine Art Galleries, T. Eaton Company Limited, Toronto. Private Collection, New Brunswick. Exhibited: 54th Spring Exhibition, Art Association of Montreal, 1937, no.210. 66th Annual Exhibition, Ontario Society of Artists, 1938. Literature: “Painter Finds Gaspe A Fruitful Area”, The Montreal Gazette, Saturday, April 8, 1939, reproduced. “As a painter Miss Mount’’’’s work is marked by a good sense of picturesque design, fluent brushwork and clean color (sic)” notes an April, 1939 Montreal Gazette article dedicated to the artist and her work. The article includes a reproduction of Late Afternoon, Glace Bay (credited as Glace Bay Harbour, C.B.) and credits the canvas as “a typical example of the port and cove scenes which interest this Montreal painter. Lost in the reproduction are the subtle qualities which mark the buildings on the high land above the waterside houses – in the original canvas a lovely blue against a golden sky. The boats in the foreground are part of the sword-fishing fleet that platforms at the end of the bowsprits from which the harpoons are being clearly shown. The craft are engine-driven, the function of the mast apart from its normal use should mechanical power fail, being to serve as a look-out in spotting the quarry at sea. This canvas was painted by Miss Mount while in Cape Breton”.
