ALFRED PELLAN. Michel Martin et al. Musee d'art contemporain, Montreal, 1993. Organized and published in association with Musee du Quebec. 258 pp. with 144 ills. (124 col.). 33 x 25 cm. ISBN 2551131685 In English.
Presenting an extensive overview of the achievements of prominent Canadian painter Pellan (1906-1988), a leading figure in postwar art in Montreal, this catalogue features excellent reproductions of 124 paintings produced from 1920 to 1984 that reflect Pellan's association with School of Paris artists during his lengthy sojourns in France during the 1930s and 50s as well as his individualistic extension of Cubist and Surrealist aesthetics. Three substantial essays discuss Pellan's stylistic development in the context of modern artistic trends in Canada and France, examine his innovative exploration of Cubist traditions, and trace in detail the critical reception of his works, which range from densely patterned still lifes and figure studies influenced by Picasso and Leger to brilliantly colored compositions based on abstracted human and animal forms.
