Alex Colville Boxed Notecard Assortment

$17.95

Realist painter Alex Colville (Canadian, 1920–2013) spent most of his life in Sackville, New Brunswick, and Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Although his subject matter often reflected his immediate environment—family and the landscape near his home—his approach transcended the personal and regional. Rendered with meticulous precision in a multilayered pointillist style, Colville’s paintings have an underlying geometric structure that contributes to what he hoped would be “a kind of ordering, fulfilling, illuminating sensation.” While his luminous images capture moments of seemingly ordinary life, they have a timeless quality imbued with many layers of significance. Contains five each of the following notecards: Crow Up Early, 1966 Cyclist and Crow, 1981 One Swallow, 1980 Owl, 1970
• 20 blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box
• Printed in full color on recycled paper with soy based inks
• High-quality 250 gsm card stock
• Soft white envelopes
• Pomegranate’s notecard sets feature exclusive selections of art from museums and artists around the world

Alex Colville

One of the greatest realist painters of our time, Alex Colville (Canadian, 1920–2013) captured moments of seemingly ordinary life in images touched with surrealism and symbolism. The artist spent most of his life in Sackville, New Brunswick, and Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Although his subject matter often reflected his immediate environment—family and the landscape near his home—his approach transcended the personal and regional. Rendered with meticulous precision in a multilayered pointillist style, Colville’s paintings have an underlying geometric structure that contributes to what he hoped would be “a kind of ordering, fulfilling, illuminating sensation.” Colville’s work is in the collections of major museums and galleries worldwide, among them the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
