Harold Barling Town
Landing, 1974
acrylic on canvas

Gift of Irving Zucker, Hamilton, Ontario, 1998

Harold Town was born in Toronto in 1940. He attended the Central Technical School and the Ontario College of Art and then worked as an illustrator for Maclean’s and Mayfair magazines. Working in a number of mediums including painting, print making and video art, Town was a co-founder of the prolific Canadian painting group Painters Eleven in the Fall of 1953. Interested in abstract and modern art, the group decided to collaborate in presenting joint exhibitions, and this is how the Painters Eleven, as it was baptised by Town, was born. Town worked simultaneously in a wide range of techniques throughout his long career (painting, drawing, prints, collage and assembly), and infused them with his characteristic ingenuity, fertile imagination.
