Jack Bush: Paintings and Drawings 1955–76
The first major exhibition of Canadian abstract artist Jack Bush’s work since his death in 1977.
This exhibition was also the first extensive survey of Bush’s work outside Canada. The exhibition consisted of 44 paintings and works on paper from 1955 to December 1976 – just a month before the artist’s death – and a similar number of drawings.
The paintings ranged from small to very large and included a number of late works that had not previously been exhibited. The drawings came from Bush’s studio and had never been shown publicly, nor was it generally known that they existed. The drawings were mostly very small but gave a new insight into the way Bush worked and the development of his painting.
The exhibition was curated by Dr. Duncan Macmillan.
