Treats for the Days of Christmas

The Art Caravan has decided to mark these days of Christmas by talking about some of our favourite works of art.  This will not be an exhaustive, extensive or scientific survey –no surprise there!–but we will, however, limit our options somewhat by only writing about work that complies with the following criteria:

* art we have personally experienced in 2016.

One of my favourite paintings in the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s permanent collection is Abstract:  Gold and Green by Lionel LeMoine Fitzgerald.

Abstract: Gold and Green, 1954, L. L. Fitzgerald

Abstract: Gold and Green, 1954, L. L. Fitzgerald

Here are a few close-up photos of the work.  In some parts of the image, pencil lines are evident.  As well, there are examples of underlying texture, and the obvious evidence of brushstrokes throughout the painting

The Art Caravan has previously written about Fitzgerald because I am a huge fan of his work.  Click here to read more about him, and see some of his other works. The Winnipeg Art Gallery currently has Abstract:  Gold and Green on display.
