Harold Town (1924-1990) is renowned across Canada for his prolific, versatile and dynamic body of work. He was dubbed the "Picasso of Canada" for his ever-changing aesthetic and perennial creativity.

In the mid 1950's he established his reputation with a series of monotypes (called "Single Autographic Prints"), which included elements of collage. While Town became one of the leading artists of the Painters 11 group, he had an important and lifelong connection to printmaking.  

Beginning in 1968 he began another important chapter in his career as a printmaker. For a period of about 3 years Town created large silkscreens, mostly on 40" x 29" paper in bold exuberant colors. 

Similar to his famous “Stretch” series, “The Candy Juggler” sees Town’s maintained focus on clean, graphic forms and a saturated color palette. Unlike works from the “Stretch” series, this screen print makes use of several layers of color and increasingly complicated compositional elements.  

While this work is at first glance abstract, like other prints from this era, demonstrates a visual allusion to elements and characters from the circus. Another example of this can be seen in "Child's Punchout" from the same year as this work. 

This is a prime example of Town's dynamism, creativity and exuberant colors.
