Art in Profile: Canadian Art and Archite #12: From Realism to Abstraction: The Art of J. B. Taylorby Adriana A. Davies.
Synopses & Reviews
Highly respected as an Alberta artist and teacher, J. B. (Jack) Taylor (1917–1970) is best known for his representational, semi-abstract, and abstract paintings of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Taylor’s initial influences were the American landscape painters of the latter half of the nineteenth century. Ultimately, he moved from a more traditional representation of nature to an intuitive perception of the essential elements of landscape – rock, water, and sky – as impacted by light. Rather than presenting mountains in all their majesty, using acrylics and other media, he captured the aura of the mountains in a unique and abstract style.
