oil on paper circa 1960
signed and inscribed "Aux Vermette"
6 x 10 pouces  15.2 x 25.4cm

Provenance:
Collection of Mariette Rousseau-Vermette and Claude Vermette
By descent to the present Private Collection, Montreal

This elegant oil on paper was a gift from Marcelle Ferron to ceramicist Claude Vermette and his wife, textile artist Mariette Rousseau-Vermette, as indicated by the dedication ''Aux Vermette'' on the work. Both Claude and Mariette produced significant public installations, and they were important forerunners of modernism in Quebec from the 1950s and onwards. This composition is strong and dynamic. Ferron counterbalances the black and deep crimson in the background with large, luminous swatches of white in which faint touches of light grey and soft pink appear in transparency. Here, her use of the palette knife is lively and creates strong diagonals. Paint strokes are arranged freely - either juxtaposed or superimposed - making the eye move continually. Ferron created this piece during her time in Paris (1953 to 1966), which is regarded as her best and most coveted period. During this time she participated in group shows in Paris – in Antagonisme at the Louvre in 1960 and at the Musée d'art moderne in 1962 and 1965. She won the silver medal at the Bienal de São Paulo in 1961, making her the first Québécoise to receive such a recognition.
