Molly Lamb Bobak, Wild Flowers of Canada: Impressions and Sketches of a Field Artist, 1978, page 8

Joe Plaskett’s statement about Molly Lamb Bobak is apropos to this work: “Her oils of people in crowds suggest an expansive, even extrovert, spirit. Life is celebrated as a carnival – the pulse of life is beating, the game is being played, the drama is enacted.”
Painted with sumptuous brush-strokes and glowing with a warm palette, this painting is bursting with the pub’s animated atmosphere. The play of reflections on the surface of the bar and of the crowd in the glass behind is particularly fine.

Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000
