Lise Gervais was only 15 years old when the Refus global manifesto was published in 1948. Not long after completing her studies at the École des beaux-arts in Montreal, with members of the Automatist movement as her mentors, she gravitated towards Abstract Expressionist work. Gervais's paintings—bold, energetic, infused with brilliant colour laid on in unabashed swathes—are immediately identifiable as her creations. Their visual strength belies the personal and professional struggles and isolation she was to experience throughout her life. The title of this painting touches on a major element of Gervais's unique employment of pigment in creating a grand statement. A loose translation of the title is "an empire of colourful sources," emphasizing the strong, rich colours that inhabit this large and impressive composition.

Estimation : $30,000 - $50,000
