About

Harold Town (1924-1990) is renowned in Canada for his prolific, versatile and dynamic body of work. Town was dubbed the "Picasso of Canada" for his ever-changing aesthetic and perennial creativity. In the mid 1950's he established his reputation with a series of monotypes (called "Single Autographic Prints") which included elements of collage. While Town became one of the leading artists of the Painters 11 group, he had a important and lifelong connection to printmaking. As a artist he fearlessly experimented with different media and aesthetics - consider how different his "Toy Horse" is from his "Single Autographic Prints" or even his "Superstar" series of prints. While Town had made major accomplishments in abstraction, the stretch series was a major departure from previous non-figurative works. Interestingly when he debuted them the "Stretch" works were initially met with critical ambivalence. Today, these works look remarkably contemporary with their almost minimal forms and hyper-sweet palette. For the uninitiated, many assume this body of work to be brand new. Provenance: The Estate of Harold Town
