John Richard Fox
Untitled No 7803

1978

About

A spectacular example of painting by John Fox at the peak of his abstract period. This work has layer upon layer of subtle colors animated by the insertion of the peach or pink elements. The large scale has a great presence. Born in Montreal in 1927, John Fox attended McGill University and then enrolled at the École des beaux-arts de Montréal. Dissatisfied with its academic approach, he studied at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, School of Art and Design from 1946 to 1949, where he was influenced by Goodridge Roberts. He then worked for the critic-painter John Lyman in McGill’s Department of Art. In 1952 he received a British Council Scholarship to study at the Slade School of Art, University of London, followed by two years of independent work in Florence and Paris. Returning to Montreal, Fox began his career as a painter; he would also teach at the Saidye Bronfman Centre in the later 1960s and became a professor in the Painting and Drawing Department at Concordia University in 1970 until his retirement in 1998.
