JACK BUSH "SQUARE AND CIRCLE" LITHOGRAPH, 1960
Jack Bush (1909-1977) is Canada's most successful abstract artist of the 20th century.
Bush was a graduate of OCAD (Ontario College of Art & Design) and a key member of Painters Eleven.
Unlike his contemporaries, Bush would achieve an unrivaled level of success in New York and beyond after being praised and guided by esteemed critic Clement Greenberg.
As a result of their interactions, Bush would become friendly with several of the artists affiliated with the color-field movement including Jules Olitski and Kenneth Noland.
Unlike some of the other color-field artists, Bush only realized a small number of multiples during his lifetime.
This work "Square and Circle", dating from 1960, is one of the earliest multiples and comes from a pivotal point in his career; the disbanding of the Painters Eleven.
