A nude study by Canadian painter Hilton Hassell – titled “Standing Nude”
Painting without frame measures 24 inches high x 14 inches wide.
Original Hilton Hassell label on the reverse.
During Hassell’s early years, a Canadian art movement, formed by a loose fraternity of artists known as The Group of Seven, was beginning to emerge. Concentrating mainly on the Canadian landscape, they were dedicated to the belief that Canadian art must be truly inspired by Canadian nature itself. In 1929, Hassell studied under two of the original members of the group, JEH MacDonald and FH Johnson; as well as JW Beattie at the Ontario College of Art. They encouraged Hassell and, inspired by their work, Hassell went on to explore different styles, eventually blending the flow of forms which he ‘saw’ in nature. Later, AY Jackson and Hassell painted together on Georgian Bay. He became friends with another member of the group, AJ Casson.
This is a finely rendered oil painting by an unknown artist depicting a woman and her two small children seeking sanctuary from an approaching storm. Her daughter buries her face in her skirts and covers her eyes as the babe in arms looks over his mother’s shoulder, as the woman bends on one knee in supplication, poised to knock on a heavy wooden door. In the background, a cross stands on the edge of a wooded path, leading through the mountains. The sky above is dark and stormy. The little girl’s scarf appears to be blown by the wind. The canvas has been re-lined and the frame is 20th century.
