This is a beautiful framed archival print titled "In the Forest" circa 1984 by Toronto artist Jean Townsend.
It is an Embossed Etching Artist's Proof.
The frame is not included in the sale. The print will be rolled up and shipped in a small tube.
Jean was born in Toronto in 1921. Her artistic talents won her a four year scholarship to attend OCA from 1938 to 41. In 1942 Jean won the Governor General’s medal. Jean also studied art with Arthur Lismer, Franklin Carmichel and Nicholas Hornyansky.
Her figurative work draws heavily on myths and legends especially those from Ireland. It is said that her work is “mysterious” and in the realm of printmaking she is known as a superb technician.
Jean was a member and officer of several art associations such as the Canadian Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers, the Canadian Society of Graphic Art and the Ontario Society of Artists.
In 1963 Jean along with her husband, artist Saul Field, developed a non toxic printmaking process called “Compositional Plate” now called “Compotina”.
Jean Townsend’s artwork is in the private collections of Vincent Price, Taylor Caldwell and Marshall McLuham and many others. She has exhibited extensively across Canada and the USA and is represented in the permanent collections of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the New Brunswick Museum, Queens University Gallery, the National Library in Ottawa and the University of Toronto Library.
Art measures 15.5 x 20 inches.
Great condition. Print seems slightly warped. See photos.
