Montreal was bustling with creative vigour in the late 1940s, largely due to Paul-Émile Borduas and the Automatists. Although Marcelle Ferron briefly attended the École des beaux-arts in Quebec, she was far more influenced by forces outside of the classroom such as Surrealism and the non-figurative expressions promoted by Borduas. Her involvement with such intellectual circles led to her joining the Automatists and subsequently signing the Refus Global in 1948. With this new-found enthusiasm, Ferron’s work of the late 1940s emerged with a fresh vivacity through the use of the palette knife and dynamic sculpting of paint layers. Sans titre encompasses such strength, with the dark colour palette and iridescent light rising from the depths of the canvas. Perhaps due to her lack of formal training, this work contains an immediacy and freshness that is further reflective of the Automatists’ stimulating initiatives. Ferron moved to Paris in 1953, but the critical climate of Montreal in the late 1940s proved to be a productive and influential environment. Rhythmical and alluring, Sans titre is evidence of such inspiration.
