RITA LETENDRE "MIR 2" LITHOGRAPH, 1973
Rita Letendre (b.1928) is one of Canada’s leading female abstract painters.
While Letendre was associated with Les Automatistes in Montreal (which included Borduas, Riopelle amongst others) she established her reputation with her unique style of painting that combined hard-edge abstraction with color field aesthetics.
This lithograph from 1973 is evocative of her signature style; bold bands of colors intersected by sleek elongated chevrons.
These compositional elements are instantly recognizable and have an undeniable uplifting energy.
Rita Letendre is represented by the prestigious Galerie Simon Blais in Montreal.
Her work regularly appears on the secondary market commanding strong prices.
Nearly every major institution in Canada has examples of her work in their permanent collections including the National Gallery, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
