Montreal, Views of the City's Artists

These three small paintings (12 x 12 inches) appeared in an exhibition called Montreal Views of the City at the Beaux-arts des amériques on St. Denis St. in January 2014. My interpretation of the theme was to paint my interpretations of the work of three giants of Quebec art from the 1940s to the 1960s: Although they look nothing like the painters I'm supposedly channeling, I did work as best I could with the colour schemes, styles and methods of the selected artists.They are Paul-Émile Borduas, Guido Molinari and Jean Paul Riopelle.
