Oil on board, featuring abstract theme artwork. Signed and manner of Andre Masson (French, 1896-1987) on lower right margin. 20 x 16 in. (51 x 41 cm). An early Surrealist and devotee of Cubism - who went on to inspire the New York Abstract Expressionists before taking up a late interest in impressionistic landscapes - Andre Masson was an iconoclast whose abrupt stylistic transitions defy classification. Along with Joan Miró, he explored automatic drawing, seeking to express the creative force of the unconscious. PROVENANCE: Southern Ontario estate
