Description:
JACK LEONARD SHADBOLT, R.C.A. UNTITLED - ABSTRACT COMPOSITION oil on canvas signed 43 ins x 36 ins; 109.2 cms x 91.4 cms Provenance: Private Collection, Toronto Literature: Roald Nasgaard, Abstract Painting in Canada , Douglas & McIntyre, Vancouver/Toronto, 2007, page 134. Note: In 1956, Shadbolt travelled to the south of France. Nasgaard writes: “the painting that resulted was unanticipatedly hedonistic, townscapes and harbour scenes, built up into block-like mosaic patterns of energetic touches of luminous sensuous leaf colours, (with) painterly patches aligned on the lattice of a Cubist grid, often articulated with a horizon line.” Describing paintings from this period, Nasgaard references “the thick paint, smeared and splattered“ and “the wonderfully felt passages in which facture and representation interlock.”

Description:
Jack Leonard Shadbolt BCSFA CGP CSPWC OC RCA 1909 - 1998 Canadian Church, Saanich oil on paper on board circa 1936 signed 21 1/4 x 30 1/2 in 54 x 77.5cm Provenance: Estate of Leon Katz, Toronto Private Collection, Toronto Literature: Patricia Ainslie, Correspondences: Jack Shadbolt, Glenbow Museum, 1991, reproduced page 49 Exhibited: Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Correspondences: Jack Shadbolt, November 2, 1991 - January 5, 1992, catalogue #7 Jack Shadbolt was influenced in the 1930s by the American and Mexican muralists such as Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. The emphasis of the muralists on Social Realism and rural values coloured Shadbolt’s awareness in works such as this. He was also inspired by their use of solid three-dimensional form, and in Church, Saanich, form is robust and the buildings feel rooted in the landscape. The simplicity of the scene has a directness and honesty, with the inclusion of elements such as the vintage car and the electrical poles. Shadbolt’s use of light and shadow is dramatic, with light striking the white church and the path leading to it through the fence, contrasted with the moodiness of the shadows on the road and the clouded sky behind. The related 1941 drawing entitled Old Church and Car was sold by Heffel on June 25, 2005, as was the related 1947 watercolour entitled Country Church, Saanich on June 17, 2009. This work is accompanied by a copy of a February 26th, 1973, letter from the artist to Leon Katz in which he dates the painting circa 1936.

JACK LEONARD SHADBOLT, R.C.A. GRANVILLE STREET AT NIGHT (EVENING, GRANVILLE STREET; GRANVILLE STREET, WARTIME), 1946 signed and dated ‘46 31 ins x 23 ins; 78.7 cms x 58.4 cms Provenance: Maria Tachesi, Vancouver Mrs. Milus Douglas Roberts, Vancouver Private Collection Literature: Jack Shadbolt, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, 1969, page 29, cat. no. 3, reproduced. Ian Thom, J ack Shadbolt: Early Watercolours , Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, B.C., 1980, introduction. Scott Watson, Shadbolt, Douglas & McIntyre, Vancouver/Toronto, 1990, page 36, and page 31, reproduced in colour. Note: Watson quotes Shadbolt reflecting on his work of this period: “I find myself full of satisfaction as an artist in the streets about me: in the strange facade of a modern city block built up of all the historic hangovers of old architectural styles.” Watson continues: “The street scenes of downtown Vancouver showed (Shadbolt’’s) fascination with telephone poles, neon signs, scaffolds, guy wires, chimneys - objects he called the “appendages of the modern street.” But his interest was no longer, he pointed out, in architectural incident for its own sake, but as “a complete reflection of society.” While the subjects are similar to the ones he worked on before joining the army, the treatment is different. The watercolour medium is used in a more fluid manner, which enhances the feeling of damp and inclement weather and heightens the reflection of neon light in pavement pools, an image that seemed of particular interest to him.” Granville Street at Night is an exceptional example of Shadbolt’’s Vancouver street scenes. In the introduction to the catalogue for his watercolour exhibition of Shadbolt’’s works, curator Ian Thom refers to this lot as a “documentary work of the highest order” .
