In 1952, Painters Eleven virtuoso William Ronald spent several months in New York taking classes from Hans Hofmann. He had done so on the advice of his Painters Eleven colleague Jock Macdonald, and it is ironic to note that the influence of Macdonald is much stronger in Ronald’s work than that of Hofmann. Ronald had been exploring elements of Cubism and fragmentation, with distinctive and most often finely applied accents of black ink - not unlike those found in Macdonald's work. It was these early ink tracings that would mature into bold, calligraphic marks and come to define Ronald’s work and make it utterly distinctive for the next few years. Chinoisie is a fine example of his work from this time. The painting's palette of pastel washes is overlaid with bold, energetic black marks. These contrast perfectly with the finely applied black and white trails of paint that dance throughout the work in joyous abandon. This jubilant play of mark and colour creates a pleasant tension between the solid, intentionally painted areas of the work and the more loosely applied dancing trails of black and white.
