John Fox in Venice

Although a life-long resident of Montreal, John Fox (1927-2008) was drawn to Florence and Venice in the early 1950s. There he studied and painted before returning to Montreal where he became a professor of fine art at Concordia University. But Fox returned to Venice regularly and for increasing periods of time. It was there in 1972 that his Intimist inspired paintings of figures and interiors for which he had become known gave way to large abstract canvases. The hues and personalities of his numbered abstract works from this period found inspiration in the textured palimpsest walls and rich colors of Venetian painting .
