Born in the city of Toronto, Jack Bush is widely renowned 20th century artist who received many accolades all throughout his career. The abstract painter was a member of the famous Painters Eleven collective, and is still considered one of Canada’s most interesting artists of his time.
“Blue Slant” is a high quality piece, that represents Jack Bush during one of the best periods of his career. A rare piece from the artist, both in size and beauty, it is confirmed to appear in Dr. Sarah Stanners’ catalogue raisonné of the artist. The work was actually created the same year that Jack Bush represented Canada in the prestigious Sao Paulo Biennial in 1967, which certainly indicates just how special this painting is.
