Alex Colville Notecard Folio
Ten 5 x 7 in. blank notecards (5 each of 2 designs) with envelopes in a decorative folio
Alex Colville (Canadian, 1920–2013) has been called one of the greatest realist painters of our time. Rendered with meticulous precision in a pointillist style, his paintings have an underlying geometric structure that contributes to what he hoped will be “a kind of ordering, fulfilling, illuminating sensation.” While the images capture moments of seemingly ordinary life, they have a timeless quality imbued with many layers of significance.
Colville’s work is in the collections of major museums and galleries worldwide, including the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, among others.
Contains 5 each of the following images:
